Black & White

Pinterest: Tsumori Chisato / Asymmetric Striped Dress | La Garçonne
I fell in love with this dress and the style. After seeing it on so many models in solids and different fabric variations.
 Tsumori Chisato / Asymmetric Striped Dress | La Garçonne
Pattern: Butterick 5848 Very loose-fitting, pullover top or dress has yoke variations, side front/side back seams, no side seams, front overlapped sleeves, and narrow hem.
Sizes: 4-26
Fabric: Jersey knit as a bonus included with purchased fabric.
Alterations: Stitched down the overlapping sleeves to decrease the opening to 17 inches due to being able to see all the way down. You understand!
It's a very quick and easy pattern. If you choose the correct fabric, you'll get a nice drape like on the pattern. I'm happy with the draping.
