anda dress


















cross it off my list - i made a dress from a pattern. maybe i didn't print it, or pin it to the fabric, maybe i didn't really use it. but i downloaded it, read the instruction & eyeballed it. it's half from the anda pattern by burda. i used a bright purple, mid-weight linen.

a couple of things about my version. i didn't do the drawstring or the casing; i knew i would wear belts instead. i did make a belt with matching fabric & brown buttons. pre-wash your fabric, i never do this - i always regret it. i also cut the back panel too big, so i did a couple of darts in the back.

to see more pics check here. i just posted a year of projects.

Wow Ann, it looks great. It helps that the model in the dress is so good looking as well.
