This past weekend most of my sewing time was spent Washi making. I made a Washi dress for a friend of mine in the early Winter and she just asked me to make her another dress and a tunic. I love sewing Washis so I was happy to make them for her. She picked out some great chambray fabrics and I love how both of them turned out. Sadly, because this friend lives in Canada (and she hasn’t even gotten her new dress and tunic yet) all I have is photos of these on hangers. These were the 9th and 10th Washis that I’ve made– I really love this pattern!
The tunic was made from this small herringbone chambray and the dress was made from this slub chambray, both from Robert Kaufman. When I placed the order for the fabric I ordered extra of both since I’ve really been on a roll sewing with chambray lately! I used the herringbone chambray for Luke’s pullover parka and I am currently making myself an Everyday skirt with the last bits of leftover fabric.
I made this Washi tunic quite a while ago and it is one of my favorite me made items. I made it using Sarah Jane’s When I am King fabric. I love the color of this pink and the printed crowns are so fun.
I’ve worn this shirt quite a bit this spring and summer. It’s a nice light weight and it’s good for hot weather. Have you made a Washi yet?
