Description

I have been wanting to make Rae Hoekstra's Washi Dress pattern ever since I first saw it online! My favorite LFS, Superbuzzy, had ordered some of the paper patterns so I couldn't wait to go fabric shopping!

Word is now out in my family that mom (mother-in-law) can really sew :smile:! I now have some orders I need to fill from my daughter-in-law and daughters so what better time than a birthday! My daughter-in-law, Lacey, will be having our second grandson towards the end of May and she is clothes hungry. 

I picked out some beautiful Voile from Tula Pink's Prince Charming line for Free Spirit called Hex Box. I figured if it doesn't fit now, it will right after the baby is born and oh do I remember how frustrating it was to try and fit in my clothes again.

All cut out, now to start sewing . . . 

Tunic is finished and ready to be mailed! The Voile looks great and is so easy to sew.

This top is so cute on (a little tight on me but the way it falls is great) and I can't wait for Lacey to see it.  The shirring on the back didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped but it works . . . and the fabric will match the bag (^lacey-s-modern-diaper-bag) I made her :smile:.

So cute! I am sure your DIL will love it....and the pattern in the fabric will work well to cover up the new baby spit up! Congratulations on the new grandbaby!

I love it. I haven't made garments in years as all my time is spent quilting. You just gave me the inspiration to make that darling dress!
It is soooo cute!

Thank you everyone! Today is her birthday and she just opened the package when I called. She loves it and at 8 months pregnant, was able to try it on smile ! The Voile I used is such great fabric and Tula Pink has the best designs. I went out and picked up some fabric for myself!!
