  81. Would LOVE to get a copy! I have been eyeing it as a fabulous work “uniform”. The dress has such a flattering shape and I love how it looks great on everyone who posts a pic wearing it.

    I have to admit as a science teacher who loves sewing (and knitting), I thoroughly enjoy following your blog.

  82. Oh, I would love to win a pattern! I have been wanting to try this pattern for a while and I have just the beautiful voile stashed for just such a dress!

  83. I would love to try the Washi Dress. I just bought the Ruby dress in the last week. Sewing your children’s patterns have given me the confidence to sew adult patterns. I think you are simply amazing.

  84. Happy birthday, Washi! I would love to make this dress and have been eyeing the pattern for months …

  85. Oh I would love a copy of this pattern – I have been eyeing it for ages, and there are some wonderful examples here of more curvy girls, so I am now sold

  91. I know it’s a long shot but I would LOVE a washi dress pattern! (I recently maxed out my pattern budget on a craftsy sale.😉) But I will add sleeves to mine because I don’t do sleeveless (just a FYI). Thank you!

    Also, your sewing tips have made my life so much better!

  92. Happy birthday washi dress!! I have always wanted to try this pattern but I’m chicken to sew for myself😀 if I have the pattern then no excuses right?

  93. How serendipitous! I just discovered your website today (while trying to find a Flickr pool for Little Green Dresses), and I’m in love! The Washi has such classic styling, and is so flattering on so many bodies. I’d love to make one for my own. : )

  94. I would LOVE this pattern to add to my collection! I love that it’s different from the other dresses I make and seeing all the washis in the hashtag on Instagram is inspiring me to make one! Happy birthday to the washi 🙂

  96. The Washi printed pattern is on my wishlist, so winning it would be great! I don’t usually wear dresses, so I’d start with a Washi top when I finally add the pattern to my collection. From the photos I’ve seen, I think the top would look great on everyone.

  97. Happy birthday, Washi! I’ve actually been practicing how to sew with elastic thread in preparation to buy the pattern and make it for myself. Winning it would be amazing though!

  98. I love love love my Washis! I didn’t join the Insta party because I’m just not that cool. I have fabric all bought for a new Washi dress, but I need to make it in a smaller size (good thing? bad thing? who can really say). I’d love a paper copy of the pattern.

  99. Me please. I have had fabric bought for clothing for myself for nearly 5 years, but as of yet, have only made a skirt I don’t wear.

  100. I would love to sew a washi! So many options to make it yours.

    And of course, I would love to win it…. 🙂

  102. I have only ever made stuff like cushions and bags and would love to try some clothes for myself. This dress looks perfect and love the style. 👗💃. Would be a bit of a challenge with 2 babies to look after, bit one im up for! 💪👍😃🍀

  103. Happy washi birthday! Been following the entries on instagram, and they are all super cute. Wanna make one for myself as well 😀

  104. I put Washi on my pattern wish list after I saw how flattering it is on my fellow large busted ladies. I still haven’t been able to decide on what fabric I’ll use, though.

  105. I’ve seen so many Washi dresses that I’m going to have to make one for myself – only trouble is, the thought of cutting and sticking the paper is more daunting than first-time-shirring!
    Sew I’d love to win the paper pattern! 😀

  106. I’ve had this pattern on my to-make list for quite awhile, just haven’t gotten around to buying it yet. I’d love to win one! Happy Birthday Washi!
