31 Dear Ms. Rae, Thank You.

       Dear Ms. Rae,
I would like to express my sincerest gratitude and utmost appreciation for your Washi Dress pattern. I am beside myself due to the simplicity and beauty of this design. 
I have been sewing for many years and have great respect for good design but alas I am puzzled...
How were you able to design such a dress to tailor fit my body? How were you able to obtain my measurements? How did you know what design would work best for me
Honestly, you could have just made the dress to fit ALL women, but instead, you chose me as the foundation for your creation. I am at a loss for words.
So instead of running at the mouth, filling the sky with joy and reverence, allow me to show you my deepest thanks with these last few pictures...
Sending you much love,
Venus

p.s., I give you full permission to use my measurements for future designs. *wink*

  2. You are hilarious! And those washis are some of the prettiest I have seen so far! (funny, only last week I totally fell in love with the floral fabric of your first dress and made a hat out of it!)

    1. Oooo, a hat! I'd love to see it!!! That fabric is fabulous. After so many washes, it feels so soft and comfy. I'm surprised my girls haven't said anything about me wearing the same dress over and over again.

  3. And by the way, the washi pattern I received had exactly MY measurements. She is a wizard, Ms. Rae! We are so lucky, bespoke tailoring is usually unaffordable!

  5. I won't lie, it WAS difficult, but between the 24 hour surveillence team, the satellites, and the infrared cameras, we were able to ascertain your measurements to the nearest nanometer. We almost named your size "Venus" on the size chart, but then we figured it might be confusing to others who wanted to use the pattern.

    ;)

    (so glad you love it!!)

    1. Huh... well that explains why I felt I was being watched all this time! Yah, I guess it would've confused others, plus we don't want anyone to feel left out, but I know better! *wink*

      Thanks again, Rae!
