I totally forgot to link up for A Lovely Year of Finishes for the end of September. I finished my Washi dress in time to take with me on my trip and wore it a couple of times while I was away.
I found the instructions very clear and easy to follow. I did find it useful to make a muslin beforehand as I ended up resizing what I thought I would be. I ended up making a size smaller. I had never done shirring before but Rae gives very good instructions on it. It was quite fun to do.
I made a full lining for the dress as well using a very thin, soft fabric. Again, I found these instructions on Rae's website. Love the dress and will definitely be making another one.
