Ulm Collection Part 2


I am back again with another dress from the Ulm Collection – aka dress made with fabric I bought in Ulm, Germany. The fabric is supposedly from an Italian maison. Aren’t the colors and pattern pretty? It is a thin cotton that is very soft against the skin.




This time I used pattern 1c “Simple One Piece 3” from a Japanese book named Quoi Quoi’s Daily Dress.




It is a simple sleeveless dress cinched at the waist at the front and back with elastics. I am not a big fan of elastic waists, but I find this design with elastic on only part of the waist interesting, and I was also curious about how the design would turn out, given that the picture in the book is dark and it is difficult to see the waist detail, so I decided to give it a try.






I made a straight Size 9 with no changes. Construction is very simple, Quoi Quoi patterns are great because they always teach how to finish a garment looking beautiful inside and out, without lining the garment. The cinching of the waist is made using a set of three short thin strips of elastic at the front and the back. The most difficult part of assembling this dress was sewing on the elastics since they need to be stretched out while sewing onto the dress.



I always like a keyhole back ❤️後ろのあきもあかわいい

Well, that’s all for now! I hope you are enjoying Spring!

  1. The fabric is very nice. I love Japanese sewing books, have many but haven’t sewn any yet (apart from a little girl’s dress).

    1. Thanks! Me too, I love flipping through Japanese sewing books for styling tips, but can not get a good idea of what the pattern looks like without looking at the technical drawing)
