when I saw Anajan’s african dress I said myself:“ok, it’s easy, let’s try”. BUT I’m a novice (never forget, never forget, never forget….) and I had a lot of troubles in making this dress.
I cut the fabric and it was TOO BIG (I’m always afraid it’s too small)!! then I modified it a bit and it was really small (I couldn’t breathe!!). Now it’s quite my size (not my size really, but with my magic pink belt, everything becomes possible!!)
PS I don’t know why, but I had to modifie the pattern because I thought it was a maxi dress and it wasn’t!!
