This tiered dress for children has three-tiered frills with plenty of gathering. The fabric used is CATS from the “+HAyU fabric” series. It is a fluffy double gauze embroidered fabric with round and square sashiko-style embroidery as an accent. The large cat designed with wire art has a great presence! It is a must-have for early spring outings.

We interviewed Naomi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
I thought that the pretty embroidered pattern of a cat has such cute impact! I also like the color combination of pink and green. Since this fabric has a strong presence, I decided to make a simple yet voluminous design tiered dress.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
To make it easier to slip on and off, the back neckline features an elastic tape. It is also relatively straightforward to sew because there is no need to make an opening.
KF: What are some tips for making this dress?
The part where you have to sew a lot of gathering may be challenging, but they add the volume that makes this dress a cute piece, so please try your best!
KF: How should we incorporate this dress into one’s styling?
In the photo, I’ve styled it with a pair of socks, but I think it would also look cute with leggings. Please enjoy coordinating the bright pink color for a spring look♪
