Something had been sitting on my shelf unused for way too long.
Despite having fallen in love with several of the dresses that have appeared in blogland from within its pages. But taking the plunge into uncharted Japanese pattern waters has taken a while. And I won't pretend it was all plain sailing. The pleats are not absolutely perfect. And I couldn't make the sleeves fit at all. Which necessitated a swift modification with some bias tape bound armholes.
