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