I used the Anda Dress pattern because I wanted an Autumn dress that I could wear it in the evening as well as during the day!
I didn’t like the idea of the drawstring so I chose a fabric which would hang nicely on the body. I also shortened the hem so it looked more like a party dress!
Further to this I altered the pattern by introducing panels in the front of the dress. The idea of the panels was influenced by the elbow pads you find on Sports Jacket.
To make these panels I simply traced the BurdaStyle Anda Dress, hand-drew the curved panel, as well as hand-drew the front sleeve. The pattern in the end consisted of four pattern pieces instead of two – One, front; two, back; three, front sleeve; four, front panel.
