milkshake shakes

Last weekend I had half a coffee milkshake at dinner, and it got me so wired that I stayed up too late and made a dress.

The fabric is from my stash (it’s pretty old), and the pattern is from the Japanese craft book Camisoles and One-pieces. Here’s the cover:

The ISBN is 4579110439.
The pattern is pretty cute. I don’t know if you can really tell, but the front and back are gathered and held together by a fabric rope, if you will. It’s loose and comfy and has a cute pocket. Check out the detail here:

I have a ton of projects just sitting in a pile, so maybe I should have coffee milkshakes more often?

    wow, super cute! I wish I could sew… I want to make skirts and things especially since I am too tall to fit the skirts in the stores, but I would probably be too busy, since I am a full time college student. meh T_T
    I love your blog, I’ve been reading it for a while now, and this is my first time commenting… It’s fun to read about all the funny stuff you do! ^_^

    I made my daughter a really similar dress a few weeks ago. I love stuff that goes together quickly and looks cute.

    Oh, that dress is just darling. Those pockets are to die for! I love cutesy little touches like that. Unfortunately, I am not much of a sew-er…but I really want to be!!
    Thanks for mentioning the book you used and the ISBN no. That is really helpful!

    I love that dress… everything about it! The fabric, the cut, the pockets, and so on. Where, oh, where does one find the pattern book???
    I’d love to make something like that.

    That dress looks fantastic! Although I suspect too many coffee milkshakes in a row would lead to burnout, even though your wardrobe would be fabulous.
