Washi Dress | Made By Rae


Designer: Made By Rae
Paper Pattern
Difficulty: Confident Beginners

This sweet and flattering dress features a cut-out scoop neckline, an above-the-knee hemline, pockets, and shirring in the back for an easy, comfortable fit. No zippers or closures are needed, making it a wonderful project for the intermediate sewist! The pattern can be made without sleeves, with a basic scoop neckline, as a tunic, or with a longer skirt to achieve a large number of different looks. You’ll be thrilled with all of the variations you can create with this fantastic pattern!

Also available as a digital pdf print-at-home version.

There is also a Washi Dress Expansion Pack pattern available to purchase as a pdf downloadable version. This Washi Dress Expansion Pack is a supplement to the original Washi Dress pattern, and allows you to make a number of Washi variations using a combination of original pattern pieces and new Expansion Pack pattern pieces. The 49-page Expansion Pack pdf pattern includes full-sized pattern pieces for linings, bows, collars, and two different sleeves, as well as an adapted bodice piece (with different armholes for sleeveless or sleeves, and a new front center seam that could potentially be adapted for nursing.) There are clear, step-by-step instructions on how to add all of these new features to your Washi Dress. While the original Washi Dress pattern is intended for confident beginners, the techniques in the expansion pack are more intermediate to advanced.
