Return of the Modified Asaka Dress

The Minerva Exclusive Countryside Cluster Viscose Challis* inspired me to make another modified Asaka wrap dress by Named Patterns*. In my opinion, Asaka is one of Named Patterns*’ classic patterns, which has become one of my TNT (Tried and Tested) patterns that I reach for time and time again.

I’ve made this dress a few times before, the shorter version which I blogged about here and here. Also, I made a maxi version and blogged about here.

Recently, I discovered that instead of making belt ties, I can use D rings to make belts to match the fabric of projects or use a contrasting fabric. I prefer D-ring belts and they can be used on jeans. So, for this dress, I made myself a self-fabric D ring belt. It does mean that there isn’t much contrast or emphasis on the waist when I wear the dress.

The fabric is soft against the skin. I love wearing viscose challis garments. They feel so luxurious and flow nicely.

For more information about the fabric and my thoughts on it, please check out my post on the Minerva* website here*.

I love that I can also wear it as a beach coverup

And yes, my dress has pockets.
