Floral Anda

Added Apr 30, 2008

Los Angeles, Cal...






Easy peasy Anda! I didn’t even include the elastic casing, just used a belt to cinch the waist. Since the dress was so simple, I figured that it was the perfect way to showcase a busy floral print like this one. I wanted to use a fabric with nice drape, so chose this polyester spandex knit because it worked with my budget. Only problem is, it doesn’t breath well which isn’t too pleasant on a hot day! (Next time, I’ll use an all natural fabric that breathes and is more eco-friendly.) Overall though, very happy with the fit and simplicity of the project.

Material Notes

Polyester spandex knit.

    I would love to be able to make it with my eyes closed :-( it is my first project, I have selected and cut the fabric, only now as front and back are different shapes, I don’t know where to start sewing them together? Do you know any tutorials or how to’s on piecing a front and back together?… Dress looks great, so I am not giving up! :-)

    stunning how much difference a good fabric can make – this dress does not look like anda. Looks really great.

    I love your version of Anda. It looks so different and much better than the original one. Anyway, the colours love you.

    I cannot say I never liked Anda, but now I love it! Goes straight into to-do list. If I find a fabric that is as interesting as your and matches my personality… This one seems to perfectly match yours!

    Wow, great fabric for this pattern! You’re making me think of something … I have also some fabric with big print. And just wanted to say that I already recognize a creation of yours by the preview-photo on the creation-list! Great photos! :) You did some alterations, didn’t you? The sleeves are cool…
