Drape drape

Drape-drape3

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.
