Day two and more sewing for  KCW , it seems like that was so long ago! I had fun with this little dress.


First, the ginham is this absolutely gorgeous Nani Iro fabric, which I got at the lovely Miss Matatabi Etsy Store. I can't tell how much I love the fabric- it's a double gauze with painted lines on it. It was such a pleasure to work with, can you tell I'm hooked!




I cheated a little to make the dress, I cut the fabric along the weft instead of the warp, but I really wanted to incorporate the lighter shades of grey that were along the fabric.



The longest part was cuting the fabric and making sure all the lines coincided. The sewing was a breeze.
I got the pattern from a Japanese Book ( Enanna 80-90) I've owned for a couple of years and just realized that it went up to size 3-4  size 3. Well guess what I am making most of Miss E's clothes from this book, before nothing fits. I actually lenghtened the dress by 5cm and she will have to wear shorts with it, because you can almost see her belly button when she puts her arms up.


I love the shape and collar on this dress. I love that it doesn't actually have sleeves, but it does. I love that it is loose fitting and that Miss E will be able to grow in it. I love everything about it.


 We had so much fun with this photoshoot, we had music going and props- it helped I told Miss E she could choose a snack once we were done.


There will many more Japanese Patterns tested in this home I tell you... at least one more to show on the blog tomorrow ( I sewed it last night!)...

You can see what everyones up too on the KCW Flickr group and check mine out too while you are at it!!!
Happy Sewing!
