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!
