When I saw this pattern on Made By Rae's blog, I purchased it right away. My sister has made the washi dress and I love the neckline and style of the dress. Rae has recently published The Geranium Dress pattern, which is essentially a 'mini washi'. It also has other variations of the dress which I might try for Juliette or Emily.
I covered buttons in green cotton drill for the back...
The fabric is called Montreaux Drill Grocer. I found it at Spotlight a week or so ago for only $10 per metre. I had nothing in mind for it but loved it so bought a metre and half. I was considering perhaps pillow cases but thought it was too cute for that. Then I saw the geranium pattern and got excited to make this dress!
Issie loves the 'secret' pockets. And so do I! I have never sewn these before. They were so easy and a really cool idea. You cannot see them unless you have your hands in them.
I made this dress up in a size 4. Isabella is four and a half. I would probably prefer it a little longer so if I make another one will probably go for the size 5.
I just love this dress. I think it is one of my most favourites. Isabella loves it too! I am off to check out some other versions of this dress in the Geranium Sewing Pattern flickr pool.
