drape drape 2: no. 2 dress (long sleeve version)
This dress is inspired by drape drape 2 (by Hisako Sato), but I made my own pattern using my t-shirt sloper and the sketches in the book. The sleeves are extra long and can be pushed up for a crinkled effect. I added a bit of shaping on the side seams but I don't think this is crucial. The rayon knit I used is rather heavy but very drapey and this prevents the dress from being too bulky or shapeless. Again, this dress is flat and only drapes once you wear it.
