The Elegantly Versatile Amayodrape:

This beautiful Japanese-inspired garment is ideal for use on the beach, as a suggestive bedroom gown, or as a complement to your evening outfit.  If you’re going for a more glamorous look, then why not use a chiffon body with cotton cuffs in complementary colours? You can even tailor the garment to create a shrug – perfect to keep you warm during those chilled out summer nights - by using cotton or wool! The Amayodrape will be more than ideal to add a touch of class and prestige to any outfit.

CREATIVE TIPS:

It can be made from three pattern pieces, is simple and easy to make and is ideal for beginners! If you are new to sewing, then we recommend relying on a more stable material (consider cotton poplin) for the body and sleeves as it is easier to work with. For more advanced sewers who wish to experiment with lighter fabrics, you may want to use chiffon for the body and satin for the cuffs and collar, to create a sultrier, more flowing silhouette. For added flair, you can even try some light to moderate bead placement in a colour that matches your garment!
