|You just can't go wrong with nani IRO!|
I'm convinced that my version looks decent because of the fabric and not because I can sew!
I will make no secret of the fact that I am a big fan of Straight Grain An's aesthetic. One of the very first patterns I bought once I discovered the PDF world was the Hanami Dress (you can get yours here. Get it! You can thank me later). It was everything I loved in a dress. I mean, come on! Who can resist "tulip flutter sleeves"? But I'll save that discussion for another time.
Back to the Ishi.
|Please don't ask me why she has a cat face sticker on her cheek.|
|Sewing with nani IRO double gauze just makes everything that much prettier!|
I mean, look at that! Reminds me of Monet. Yes, I like the Impressionists, okay? Let's just move on.
Anyway. I love this pattern. Okay, maybe not as much as the Hanami Dress, because let's face it, that dress has flutter sleeves, sorry! But I do really love the Ishi, too. Hey, maybe I have something for Japanese names....
I made the 4Y for my 4-year-old, no alterations. This is just my personal preference, but I might try to make it a bit longer when I make it again. I suspect that my daughter has a long torso compared to other children her age, so that might be part of it.
|Do you like the little ribbon I added? I just couldn't resist.|
Thanks for reading!
