Recently I became the proud owner of the Japanese books Drape Drape 2 and Pattern Magic – Stretch. I was pondering which stretch top to make first when One Pattern One Week was underway and MaciNic had chosen no 4 from Drape Drape as her pattern.  I was impressed!  She has made several wonderful versions so I was decided.

Pattern: Drape Drape no 2 pattern 4 – size L

Fabric:  Red – wool jersey, Yellow – blend large amount of stretch

Ease:  Easy – 3 seams and a neckband!

Tidbits: I made up the yellow version first and the fabric is super duper drapey.  It is interesting to compare the two which are identical except for the neckline.

Lessons:  I lifted the neckline a little in the red version and I like it better.  I also think you could get a different look by sewing a smaller size, which I might try next time. I should check which size others chose..

Looks pretty good backwards too!

Score:    4/5 Uber comfortable and a touch of style, what’s not to love!

My sister and I are going to watch Kylie in concert next year, and she suggested that I make costumes for us to wear.  I was a little unsure until I remembered this pattern from Drape Drape. Remind you of a white Kylie outfit at all? Ha!
