Los Angeles, Cal...
In an effort to use up all (or at least most) of my leftover fabric before spending more money on even more fabric, I decided to make these two “mini” Andas out of the remnants from my dolman top and Built By Wendy tunic. Since my floral print Anda made with a drapey polyester knit was a hit, I thought I’d whip up two more with a similar fabric. These Andas are a few inches shorter than the original. Since the sleeves hang, I pinned up one to the curtain to show you the actual shape. Also, this fabric doesn’t unravel, so I actually left the armholes and hems unfinished for a really casual look — I just made sure I cut the fabric ultra-straight with no jagged-y bits. I think I made these both within an hour!
