Black and Chequered Anda

Anda dress for my mother. I shortened the dress about 15 cm. As you can see, I’ve made som changes in the pattern; on the front I altered the dress, and made those broad chequered stripes across the chest.
At the back I altered the back of the neck – I made a little closure with buttons, which gives it a nice touch of being a shirt :-)
The rest of the dress is made following the instructions – no, by the way I also made it a bit smaller by sewing in the sides (god, I don’t know if it’s called that!!??)
For further information about the alteration watch my how to “alteration of the anda dress”

Material Notes

Black cotton poplin, black and white chequered, thread and three black buttons

    The back of the dress is such a cool touch and the checkered stripes across the front are so fun!

    Great dress, I would so wear this! And I really love the button detail on the back of the neck.

    Nice job, very cute. I did the sailor anda dress and I noticed that we posed the same way! :)
