Washi Top

I’ve made a couple of Washi Dresses (blogged here and here), but this time I decided to make it a top, instead. I LOVE how it turned out and have worn it several times since.

I sewed this one with Anna Maria Horner Voile (that you may recognize from this post.. long story*). It is soooo airy and breezy that it makes it the PERFECT Summer top!
I didn’t want the cap sleeves, so I shortened the shoulder seam a tad and added a binding to the armhole opening. I really love how it turned out. 
*the long story is that I made the perfect Wiksten Tova, and was IN LOVE. Then, I accidentally washed it with a pair of red/maroon pants and the top was ruined. I was devastated so I immediately got online and purchased more fabric to remake the perfect Wiksten Tova again. Time went by and Robert Kaufman came out with a luscious line of chambrays that I knew would be even more perfect for a new Wiksten Tova.. sooo I decided to sew a Washi Top out of the re-ordered fabric… in case you were wondering 😉

    So sad about your Tova!

    I just made two Washi dresses in one weekend ahhh!!! I really need tops but I can’t stop making dresses. I may need to make a couple of Washi tops though.

  2. Love the Washi in this print! I have a Washi tunic that I absolutely love. Also your new? blog design is adorable. Haven’t clicked through from reader lately as I am usually to busy with my kiddo to comment. (He’s sleeping now) 😉

  3. I am soooo impressed! My husband and I were just talking recently how I just don’t love sewing enough to make my own clothes, but you truly have the talent!

    First time visiting your blog!
