My very first Japanese Pattern book I purchased and my absolute favorite. Seriously.
I've already made a shirt for me (pattern "B") sometime back, a dress for Sophie (pattern "N") and now I've made pattern "M" for moi.
I made two slight alterations. I added about 1 1/2" to the length of the top so that it would hit just above the waist and I shortened the length of the skirt. Also, the pattern is very loose and really, only skinny tall girls can get away with such a loose fitted dress and not have it looking like a moo-moo. So being height challenged and "blessed" with chid-bearing hips, I opted to add a belt to give me shape.
Eyelet... a lovely fabric, no? I always associate this fabric with dainty little girls' Easter dresses. In fact my mom made me dress when I was little. Mine was mint green. I still need to make an underskirt. It might be a bit too risque to wear it without one, ay? Which explains why there's no photo of me in this dress. Oh dear, I wouldn't want to scare you away!
Pics to come... SOON!
