Count me in on the Anna dress party even if I’m a bit late.
This is a versatile pattern as I have tested it: at the ocean, in a park, in london, in france, eating ice cream, visiting a museum, texas cloudless and full sun super hot days, rainy days, fabric shopping days… etc! Anna works everywhere.
The only trouble I had with this pattern were the bust pleats as the instructions for that step were not clear and the illustrations didn’t illustrate it well. But there was a sewalong with photos so it all worked out.
I also chose to line it instead of using a facing because of how thin my fabric was.
