|Made by Rae Washi Dress with long sleeves and bow tie add-ons|
I saw this pattern at Quilt Market and fell in love with the simplicity and comfy style. Since it is an easy beginner pattern, I made up a few to experiment for making it into a class. Great potential for all size, shapes, and styles of women.
"Washi" Dress from Made by Rae
With add-on long sleeves and bow tie neckline
Black retro telephone print rayon challis
I bought this fabric almost 10 years ago. Cottontails Outlet in Stillwater, OK couldn't give it away. I bought 5 yards for $3. Great quality fabric, just needs the right project. I finally found it!
I took in the bodice front center by almost 2", bias wedges out of the neckline, added a dart under the bust, and adjusted for my wonky shoulders. Perfect fit!
The best compliment came from my daughter. She did a double take and exclaimed,
"Wow, I was wrong. I thought that was going to be ugly.
I want a shrink ray gun. Can you make me one?"
