My Easter Dress

Over the weekend I spent a lot of time sewing. I finished some projects that had been on my sewing table for weeks. I also bought this mint green fabric from Hawthorne Threads. It arrived on Friday afternoon just in time for me to wash Friday night and cut Saturday. The dress is made from the Washi Dress Pattern from Made by Rae, no sleeves and a white sash ribbon that ties in the back. Thank you to my friends who follow Sew Spoiled on Facebook for helping me decide on the sleeveless dress. I pinned the dress onto the dress form and got suck! Should I add sleeves or not? Luckily everyone's comments helped me decide and I am so thankful. This dress looks like spring to me. The cotton feels soft and drapes well. 
Thanks again!

Lovely dress. Did you do the shirring since you added a sash?

Yes, I did shirr but now I wish I had used just one piece of elastic at the back bodice edge. There is always next time. I was a little bummed, it was too cold to even wear for Easter.
