Description

I made changes to the upper part of the pattern from burda magazine. I wanted this dress to have a V-neckline in the back and a baudeau neckline in the front. I removed the soulder sleeves, and it also needed little seams at bust line in the front.

It is so well-mannered that it reminds me only of Anne of Green Gables ;)

    What an amazing dress! Beautiful. I think I’m going to buy this pattern too. Was it very hard to alter?

      Thank you! It wasn’t hard. I’m going to post the change instructions with pictures this week, so it will be even easier ;)

    It came out wonderfully! It does look like an “Anne” dress.

    I am glad there are other lovers of "Anne"out there. I just rewatched the three movies on tv recently which took me right back to my childhood. I think perhaps i also need to make an “Anne” inspired dress.

      Well I read through all parts in high school, my friends were joking that these are for kids not for girls that age… but I still have a specific fondness of Anne :)

    I love the fabric. You seemed to have the plaids aligned it perfectly. So cute…

      Thank you so much. Sewing this fabric is annoing at times, as you see all mistakes when one seam isn’t perfectly symmetrical with another… :)

    I’ve been thinking about this pattern since I saw it, I love what you’ve done with the pattern.

    Love it! It fits you perfectly. I hope to someday get my dresses to fit like that. I also love Anne of Green Gables. My all time favorite. In fact, I just named my duct tape dress form “Cordelia” after Anne! Ha ha.

      The fitting part is always horrible. I don’t have a manikin, so I do the pinning only on my body… my skin doesn’t like it :P
