□ Fusible interfacing: 4cm x 4cm

We interviewed Anriko about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
While the pattern seems like random dots, it creates a look of large blocks when seen from a distance. The silhouette with ample flair and lower opening on the side will accentuate the pattern.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
Cotton linen sheeting can be enjoyed in every season. Depending on the items you choose, it can be enjoyed throughout the year. The long shoulder strap and collar and armhole with a wide opening make it easy for you to choose the inner layers.

KF: What are some tips for making this dress?
t requires a lot of process using the bias binding tapes. If you are not good at it, try to attach the front side with a sewing machine and finish it with blind hand stitching on the other side. If you are familiar with the process, you can cut the center fabric as one piece with a fold line and finish the V-shaped front.

KF: How should we incorporate this skirt into one’s styling?
In the picture, you see a styling with a pair of wide leg knit pants. Even if you don’t go for a layered look, it would also look cute with a maxi skirt or leggings. In the fall, why not enjoy it with a knit top inside and a pair of tights and boots?

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

We interviewed Naomi about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
It is a beautiful fabric that is filled with a Scandinavian feel. To make great use of the impactful pattern and colors, I designed a reversible dress with a simple style that allows you to enjoy the print design. The soft material is easy to sew, yet with relative tension, it constructs the silhouette nicely.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
was particular about the A-line tent silhouette as I wanted to make this dress fit for kids around two years old who have a cute body shape with a little tummy.
The kids around this age starts to show an interest in pockets, so a fluffy round pocket is added as an accent.
In the example, I added pockets only on side A and it is made with opposite design fabric. Depending on your preference, you may arrange the design using the same fabric as the dress body.

KF: What are some tips for making this dress?
For this dress, I used a sewing method called “turn back.” You may find it a little difficult when piecing together the hem. Please make sure to refer to the instruction photos when sewing.
With this method, you don’t need to finish the seam. You can even make this dress with hand sewing only.

KF: How should we incorporate this dress into one’s styling?
With a wide arm hole, it is perfect for a layered look. It will look cute with a T-shirt and leggings/bloomers in the summer, or a turtleneck and tights for the fall/winter season.

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