Lotus Pond Washi Dress

The Washi Dress from Made By Rae is my favorite thing to sew. It is such a fun dress to make and to wear. This is the first Washi Dress that I made about a year ago. It’s made from an Amy Butler fabric that I had in my stash, called Lotus Pond. This dress is a size medium graded out to a large in the skirt.

I love the shirring in the back bodice. It is really flattering and comfortable.  On this dress the neckline is finished with a facing and the arms are finished with bias tape.  I used a coordinating polka dot print for the facing, bias tape, and pockets, which is a fun detail on the inside of the dress.

Since I made this first Washi, I’ve made 3 more Washi dresses for myself, 2 for friends, and 2 Washi tunics.  I have gotten so much mileage from this pattern and I was so excited when Rae released the Washi expansion pack with various add ons.  There are so many possibilities for customization with this dress.  I definitely recommend this pattern!
