Shelburne Falls Washi Dress

I'm so happy to have finished up this little dress-- my first "Washi" dress!

Fabric: Shelburne Falls, plaid & dot, by Denyse Schmidt.
Pattern: Washi Dress by Rae, modified just a bit.  I added about 1.5 inches to the length of the top to bring the waistline down a bit.  Then I started the rows of shirring a little lower too, and added a few extra.  I followed Rae's video to add a bodice lining to the top -- this turned out to be an amazing way to finish the dress (genius!).
I see many more of these dresses in my future -- I'm going to try one in voile next!
front "U" cutout -- surprisingly easy!
shirring on the back
lining layer on the inside
And since I had extra fabric, I made a little clutch, too!
