Description

This is my second time using the Anda pattern. I further reduced the width, added a contoured high/low hem with a facing (instead of folding up the hem), and added sections of elastic at front and back on the inside. And pockets!

I used french seams because the fabric raveled like crazy.

I’m very happy with how it turned out and I plan to wear it constantly!

Material Notes

Proper cotton ikat from B&J Fabrics. The threads of the fabric are fairly thick but soft and loosely woven, making it cool and comfortable.

    This is great! And you are right, the Anda pattern requires width reductions.
