washi dress #1

My first Washi dress ! I have a thing for dresses with pockets, and this one is just so easy to make. The hem and sleeve facings were hand sewn so it took me a bit longer, but I just like it better this way. And next time I'll have to make the top part an inch or so longer, but other than that I'm really happy with the pattern.

I actually made a Washi top at the end of last summer which I never posted about, but it's one of my current favourites - I'll try to take some photos soon.

Bianca top #5

My fifth Bianca, and probably not my last. Last year I made 4 of them, and wore them so much that I had to mend one of them by the end of the summer. It is now my go pattern for making garments out of a small piece of fabric - I probably had 1 meter of this one on my stash.

Obviously I didn't have enough for the front collar facing, so I used the remnants of my Sailor top fabric for that. I also decided to add facings to hem the sleeves, to make them more stable. Now if the weather would turn warmer so I can use it ...
