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 😉
