I bought this FU-KO Basics Japanese pattern book on a day trip to Seattle a couple of weeks ago. I specifically bought it for this dress on the cover. I loved the drape of the dress and the interesting cut of the side seams and pockets. I found this perfect black and white checked linen at Bolt and sewed up the dress last weekend. It was a quick one-day project that took an afternoon. It will look great on its own or layered over some jeans. I love it!
