Description

This dress is made using the Anna Dress pattern of By Hand London.
I like this simple style a lot. It should have been an easy sew if I had not used two layers of silk as the main fabric. Still it was a very enjoyable project and I highly recommend the pattern!

Thank you for reading:-)

    The two layers of silk may have made construction difficult, but the execution is spectacular. I’ve seen so many iterations of the Anna dress around the internet and not cared for any of them, frankly, but yours has changed my mind. Really beautiful and the fabric, pattern and color are perfectly suited to each other. Plus it fits you perfectly. Great job.
