    vanimaandune commented on the project Navy Blue Anda with Flowers

    I was going to do a how-to on the stenciling, but there’s already an excellent one by Kasia26. I’ve added it to the how to links. The only thing I did differently was I had trouble getting enough p…

    vanimaandune added the project Celestina in White

    This has been done for a while now, but I’ve just got around to posting it. Making adjustments to Celestina was tricky. I’m petite with a small bust and the neat details of Celestina are in the tor…

    This Anda dress was made from a thrifted curtain/ex-sheet. I shortened it for my petite self according to the very helpful how to. Instead of the drawstring closure, I added belt in a contrasting f…

    vanimaandune added the project Underwear!!!
    848b612cad92fb042a03ac961bfe83c89b9c1c31_listing

    Underwear cut from an old t-shirt and stenciled. I made the pattern from my favorite panties, but I was inspired by Emily Kate’s pattern and all the creations that came from it.

    vanimaandune added the project Layla in Green with Mittens
    Acdc13fc5677b56cf3d25dbd8cefca22d0e67fa1_listing

    This is an all cotton version of Layla. I couldn’t find any pre-quilted backing that wasn’t polyester, so I made my own using a double layer of cotton batting. I also used a double layer of cotton…

    18e863c1543c968f347ca5873cea5ce4391d4567_listing

    I had a much loved flannel nightshirt that had reached the end of its days (If you yanked it, it tore). I cut it up and made a pattern from it for this nightshirt. The fabric came from Jo-ann’s. I …

    vanimaandune added the project Duct Tape Sewing Dummy
    9e43823cce8c4b8a0b82d7a6d9f1efe34699950e_listing

    I realized that it’s difficult to make fitting adjustments on my own body by myself. I can’t afford a manufactured dummy nor am I confident that something store-bought would be able to replicate my…
