I made a Washi Dress.

Like every other blogger, I believe I am now a Washi Dress addict. I have already made 3 (including the one above).

I have decided I do not like shirring/my bobbin case does not really enjoy shirring so instead I will be using an elastic casing. Works just fine. 

I also like the bodice extended (As visible in this one) to provide enough room for my ample chest (hehe). 

So far I have not made one with pockets as I don't really use pockets in dresses anyway. I cannot wait for my zipper foot to arrive so I can have a go at turning this dress into a fitted dress with a side or back zipper.

Officially hooked.

Pinafore binge

This past week I have been getting into the Roly Poly Pinafore . I have not finished my binge and imagine this will be a great way to work through my stash. 

Complete with a sweet little set with some bloomers from Shwin Designs baby basics bloomers. I am sneaking this in as my signature style as it features my favourite elements of the now; organic fabric, wooden buttons, metallic gold polka dots and the right amount of whimsy.
