There are so many beautiful dresses in the Washi Flickr pool but I was especially drawn to this one by Kristin from Skirt as Top and this fabulous Autumn version. I really love the scoop neck on Kristin’s dress, as well as the the neckline on Rae’s long sleeve version so I decided to change the look a little on my dress too.
If you’re more pear than hourglass you will already know that a wide neckline is your BFF but really this pattern is so great no modifications are necessary. I did taper the sleeves in about 2″ from the sleeve hem as I wanted a more fitted look there and I love how they turned out.
I love how simple this dress was to sew, how flattering the style is on so many body types, and how versatile the pattern is. In Japan I usually share a size with Godzilla so extra bonus points for the fact that I could make this in a medium. Yipee!
