Drape Drape 3 WIP

This is a quick post to show you what I am working on at the mo.
I have a busy couple of weeks coming up, so it may be some time before I get to a) finish it and b) photograph it.

It is my first go at one of the styles from Drape Drape 3, which I was very fortunate to receive courtesy of Fashion Incubator and Laurence King.

I couldn't find any reviews or other reference to it in blogland, and while the instructions are in English, and the drawings are very clear, I have needed to 'fill in the blanks' a bit!

And I am out of my comfort zone sewing jersey, so it will be interesting to see what it looks like on.

This is the photo from the book.


And this is the tech sketch and instructions.


This is mine on the dummy.
Let me just tighten this bit a bit............
Do you think your bum will look big in this Mum?
At this point I think it will be a bit tighter than I expected (I have made the largest size) and probably a bit longer than expected but we shall see!

What's on your sewing table at the moment?

  1. Hey it looks cool though .... over leggings and boots or tights and a wee skirt and boots.

    The seamstress is ever so cute! :)

    I'm still waiting for time to get cutting out my altered pants. One day it will happen lol.

  2. Love the dress. I just found the Drape books (japanese author, same ones?) recently. I would like the dress your making as a piece to wear at home. Like chic loungewear. Your version looks great and your seamstress oh so cute.

  4. Whoops, sorry about the double comment publishing Catherine!I like your take on this piece being useful for at home. It is so hard to find nice RTW clothes that are comfy and good looking when you are chasing after toddlers all day.

    Hi Emily, the dress is now finished but I am still playing around with how I will wear it. It is def winter now so it will probably disappear under a cardi and jacket!
