Washi Dress 2-Day Workshop
Washi Dress A dress is full of sweet happiness!
The Washi Dress is my favorite goto dress. If I need something wear in a pinch this really is the pattern I reach for every time. This dress has pleated from and POCKETS! No closures so no need to know how to insert a zip since we will be using a technique call shirring, this allows the fabric to stretch (when putting it on) and to hug your bust nicely without being too tight!
Seriously one of the most comfortable garments to wear and looks stunning on all body shapes and sizes!
If you are still new to sewing please choose Quilting Cotton as it will be the easiest to work with.
