Description

This dress started out as an Anda but just looked awful on me! Shoulders hideously oversized, unsuitable fabric etc, so after sitting in my closet for a while, I decided to start over.
The bottom half is Anda, the top I added pleats to and resized.
I love Anda but Anda does not love me!

Burda for Anda

Flowerhead for her Purple Anda dress which I totally adore, and inspiring me to give anda a second chance. (Just bought new fabric)

    Ha ha! I got a great laugh from your comment! ’ I love Anda but Anda does not love me! ’ Can I relate, YES! I finished a dress that chokes me when I wear it and looks like a bag and the last two I have done mock ups for look like ill fitted choir robes that accentuate my weight gain …. ack! You are very successful in your alterations! I love the dress and all your creations.

    It turned out beautifully! I love that the pleats on the front give the skirt a little flare.

    This looks really chic! The fabric is really understated with the feminie bow just makes it really pretty.

    it’s really cute! It still even resembles the anda, so you didn’t lose it completely is your remake. great job!

    Wow – looks great. I have actually cut my Anda up to refashion it for the same reason!!
