I made a new dress

.

.

.

Soon I will have a day job again so I feel the need and urge to do a lot of craft and art before I start to work again.

First thing I did is to make myself an Autumn dress. I’m so addicted to Naomi Ito‘s design and I really like the double gauze fabric I bought this summer.  I went back to buy more Naomi Ito’s fabric. I hope she will continue to design on double gauze . They are so so comfy and pretty!!

.

.

I was inspired by this Mina Perhonen‘s Book. I talked about this book in my old blog, check here!!

Patten is from Quico‘s book. I talked about this book in my old blog , check here.

They didn’t provide “one to one pattern”, so I actually drew them in Autocad and print it out. It’s fun to draw that!!

This is the dress I made.

.

Two years ago I made this same dress with Alexander Henry’s fabric. ( see me wearing it, here!!)

.

.

.

I got two more different fabrics from Naomi Ito. I didn’t have time to make more dresses now and I also need to figure out what I want to make too. I can’t wait to finish all the things I need to do so I can jump back to crafty world (sewing and weaving) again…………………
