I made my first dress from the Stylish Dress Book. This is based off of Pattern N on page 60.
This was the first time I’ve sewn from Japanese Pattern Books. I really like how this turned out and have ordered some fabric to make another one. It is very comfy and is easy to put together.
I would recommend purchasing some Swedish Tracing Paper along with the book if you don’t already have some. It makes it easier to trace the pattern pieces, and you can sew the pieces together and make adjustments as needed before you work on your fabric.
