Lucky Cat Dress

Hello friends, As promised in my previous post , here is my second holiday dress. I wore it during our visit to N Seoul Tower, South Korea , pictures below taken in the park around the tower. I am sure you aren't surprised with the pattern I used, BurdaStyle Jamie Shift Dress  size 34. Well, this dress is my sixth version so far :) For the fabric, I used 1.5 yards of polycotton fabric in lucky cat printed that I bought in Hongkong last year. I don't know why I only bought 1.5 yards, if usually I use 2 yards for a dress. Anyway, with very careful calculation I made it :) I used bias tape instead of usual facings and cut the stripes of same fabric for hem allowance.

Well, the fabric market is huge with so many collection of Korean cotton, I bought five kinds and I think is more than enough to make nine garments. Also, I bought eight skeins yarns for my future sweater :) All the souvenir was posted in my Instagram :) Okay, enough said about the fabric market. Let's talk about my new dress :) The dress was made out of lace curtain fabric in green colour that I bought in the local market many months ago. I also made tank dress to wear underneath, used knit cotton in dark green. For the pattern, I used Burdastyle Embellished Tunic dress 11/2013  size
