Dress with a brooch

Size: Shoulder 34cm Chest 46.5cm Length 91cm Broach diameter 5cm

The featured project is a one-piece dress using Trefle Cucito, a chic design double gauze fabric made for grown-ups. The brooch on the chest is added as an accent so that the design of rhythmically lined up polka dot with butterflies hidden here and there can stand out. It can be worn as a dress or a tunic combined with a T-shirt.

We interviewed KaOrico about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
This gauze material feels soft and is highly absorbent. The broach is added so that the butterfly design will stand out.
ブローチ-9

Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
It is simple with a tucked transition design in the front.

KF: What are some tips for making this dress?
The gauze fabric tends to fray, so the edges are double folded to prevent the fraying. You may substitute this process with serging or zigzag stitches.

KF: How should we use this dress in everyday situations?
It can be worn as a one-piece dress or it will also look stylish if worn as a tunic with a T-shirt and with a pair of pants.

KF: Thank you very much, KaOrico! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
