Kid’s Dress


This simple and easy to wear children’s dress comes from the WATER COLOR series which is sprinkled with delicious cakes and soft serve ice cream prints. As the motifs are scattered randomly all over the fabric, you can cut it anyway you like without worrying about orientations. This simple style dress with a loop on the back body for a button closure should be easy enough for sewing beginners to try.

Shoulder Tuck Blouse

Size: Back length 62cm Body width 60cm

Featuring the salt shrunk cotton lawn fabric from the surfing waffle series,
this blouse, with a refreshing look and feel, is perfect for the upcoming
season. A line-drawing in single navy color keeps the floral print from being
too cutesy and creates a simple and light feel for a mature look.

Design & Work:Anriko

Fabric shown for this sample:LO-41010-2B

□ Fabric: 90cm x 1.5m
□ Double sided bias binding tape: 2cm wide x 1.7m

We interviewed Anriko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
When combined with the salt shrink process, the faux embroidery print looks like a real embroidered fabric. When I first saw it, I said, “Wow,” because it looks so real. I turned this airy cotton lawn fabric with its refreshing floral design into a cool summer blouse.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation
The simple shoulder tuck adds loveliness, yet it is not too cutesy, with a gathering only in the back. The V-neckline with a gentle curve beautifully accentuates the decollete (chestline), while it suits as everyday wear since the opening is not too wide.

KF: What are some tips for making this shirt?
You may find handling the bias binding tape made from the salt shrink processed fabric a little difficult. Here, a tape with different fabric is used. The bias binding process may not be everybody’s favorite, so it is simplified by showing only one side for both neckline and armhole.

KF: How should we incorporate this shirt into one’s styling?
Reflecting the trend of this season, it has a longer length. Pair it with skinny jeans for a simple style, or enjoy it with a pair of wide-leg pants or long skirt for a heavier yet cute look. Depending on your taste and height, you may make the front and back hem shorter or longer to a dress length.

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