It was a real fantasy dress. From the moment I started to transform the Anda pattern till the end, I had no idea how it will look like. Of course, there was some initiate idea of my Anda but not a clear one!
I bought these too fabrics a long time ago. There were two pieces of 1,5m (with flowers) and 2 m (TOW with the strips). The fabrics are different, both polyester though but the white and blue colors and the style are the same so I bought them to mix in some creation in the future.
All this time I couldn’t find any proper model for these fabrics so I guess Anda minichallenge was a destiny for these materials.
The front belt part was the hardest thing. I wanted to make accent whether on Bust or Waist, so I moved this front belt from chest to waist and backwards. I even tried this front detail as a bra right on the bust. Until I found a perfect position for it, somewhere between chest and waist. So I am very pleased with the result.
I also made a tulle skirt for additional volume as a variation.
I really wanted to transform Anda into something very gentle, light with a feminine look. I hope I achieved this result.
There is a How to to this Anda dress, I’ll be honored if it helps you to do your own summer fantasy Anda!
