Washi Dress (Again!)

Once was not enough! I had to make another Washi Dress! I made this dress just the same as my last one except this time I omitted the keyhole in the neckline. I kept the same alteration in the waistline so that it is about 2-3" lower than the pattern calls for. (Click through to my last version for more notes about sewing this dress.)

The shirring on my first dress is holding up really well, so I did that method for this version as well. Executing shirring still feels like performing a magic trick.

I left the neckline facing unattached for this version, but think I will need to go back and tack it down so it behaves better. It is a little flippy.

The fabric for this dress is:
Windham Fabrics Presents Paint by Carrie Bloomston for Such Designs
"Lotus" pattern

I think my next Washi will be the shirt/tunic version. I am digging the comfort and the silhouette this pattern produces, so I am not ready to jump off the Washi train yet!


  1. Beautiful! I love the way the shirring looks. I also have some fabric by this designer, it makes me think of Ezra Jack Keats' books.

  2. This is adorable and I LOVE that fabric! Your sewing skills impress me!
