Description

My second attempt at By Hand London’s Anna dress.
I love it! This dress makes me feel like I have grown six inches and lost half a stone. It is a great summer dress but I am planning to keep wearing it with tights, biker boots and a jumper when it gets colder.
It was a bit of a nightmare getting the fit right but that was my fault, not the pattern. Anyway, there’s not enough room here to go into detail but I blogged it at the link below:

      Thank you! It’s a great pattern, in fact I’d definitely recommend all of the By Hand London ones, so if you need to save on postage you could order a couple (bad enabler :) )
