Drape drape


I found some time for selfish sewing. There are a few projects on the pipeline at the moment. Gifts for sweet newborns, stuff for my little bean burger a small project for my little sister. Everything has to wait. I sewed myself a summer dress, it`s more a wistful story. But it felt good. It`s cold and rainy, it was a joy to sew this sunny day dress.


Do you know this fabulous book by Hisako Sato?


I already tried my hand on a few of his designs. And they`re all great. I love tucks, pleats and gathers. It`s so funny to drape a big piece of fabric in a totally different shape. I love, how his designs start to live, with the movement of the body.


I had my eye on this dress since the first view. I adore the low back and how the gathers playing with the shape of the hips. It`s a dress to live in. It`s so comfy.


The whole dress is one pattern piece. It`s genius. It`s inspiring!


The biasbinding is self-made and it`s sewn with my coverlook. Oh, I spent so much time seamripping, until I understood this machine. But know i`m so glad i`ve one!


I think, I would have become desperate, trying to sew this dress with the normal sewing machine.

  1. Drape Drape 2 is my favourite. Love your dress, I would never have thought to use yellow, yet it works really well. It’s the kind of dress that I would make for myself before realising “Ooops! how do I get away with this one without a bra?”

    • Oh yes, nr.2 is gorgeouse. i’ve sewn 3 (for my mother) and 5( for my little sister) and i’m in love whit both dresses! the bra… haha yes your right sometimes not wearing one feels strange. but as my cup size isn’t that big… i can do it. i love low back dresses, thats the prize i pay for ;).
