W.i.P Wednesday is Washi Day

Yesterday we had yet another snow day...  I took this as a sign it was time to start making a sun dress:-)  I LOVE maxi dresses so when I saw the Washi variation from Made by Rae I knew I had to make one.

This isn't the maxi version, I want to test the pattern at least once before I commit that much fabric:-)  I'm making this one with Denim yarn dyed Essex linen.

I went with the fully lined bodice version and used some long hoarded Little Folks voile for the lining and pockets.  It's all together and just needs some finish work.  Let's see if I can get it hemmed before it's warm enough to actually wear it...  I may have until August!

  1. Your dress is going to be brilliant! And I love the lining.
    I'm trying to pluck up the courage to try some dressmaking for summer clothes!

  2. OMG that is simply GORGEOUS. LOVE the lining, love the essex, love everything about it!

  3. Sundress is looking awesome! Love it!

    I have to get back to making some dresses too.
