Crinkled Dress

 I used the same pattern as a tiered long dress I made before.
This time fabric was short a bit, so I made it a knee-length dress.

I added this frill on the top of front, and I like it so much. :-)

Can you see this crinkle? I made it by myself!

At first, it was TOO voluminous just like the pregnant or a baloon !
(OH, I should take a before photo... what a stupid.. )
That was just because the fabric was stiff a bit.

I was thinking how to do with it, and I remembered a wonderful idea!!

  I got a dress wet in the water, made it twisted,
and left it under the sun one day.
 Just did this.

I got a good fit!!
I was satisfied with the result so much.

I highly recommend this way, but please note it can be only for cotton.
And do the same when you wash it.



If you buy 2 books and more, I will refund 20% of the price.
Please have a look at my etsy shop if you have some interests!


I listed some new zippers!
They are the perfect addition to your pouches and bags!  ;-)

I like the idea to crinkle the dress. Is it so you have to do it every time it is washed. i like the shape also.

Thank you for your comment! :-)
Yes, I have to do so everytime washing, but I like this way.
And it can make easy wears more dressy, I think.
Please try if you have opportunities.
