If you’re following along with the massively popular Kids Clothes Week Challenge, you may have noticed that Rae posted a mini-challenge-within-a-challenge inspired by Kristen‘s stacks of fabric sans inspiration. (Read about the entire backstory on the links to Rae and Kristen’s blogs.)
The moment I saw “Mini Washi,” I knew I was in. I have longed to make a mini Washi Dress since I outfitted my friends and myself with as many as I could whip up in the summer. Like these:
In fact, I taught a class over at Pot & Box in Ann Arbor and witnessing the creation of a Gorgeous Washi Dress for students of every size and shape, I wished to make one for my Ella.
I worked on adapting one of my own patterns yesterday, and began the dress for Ella last night, but the need for sleep won out, and I left the rest of the construction for today. Naturally she wants one for her new doll, Astrid, as well. I’ll work on that later.
I’ll update with some modeled shots this afternoon, but I couldn’t wait to show you. (FYI: Ella’s is long and mine is knee-length, if the scale here has you wondering what kind of Amazon I have for a daughter.)
