    Looks Great! I´ve been meaning to make an Anda for the past two years. Maybe I´ll finally start it now. I like those shoes too:)

    Thanks everyone! I got this fabric on Sale at Joann’s- They have a really lovely colorful line of “Indian Summer” fabrics which I have made several projects with (will post those soon!)

    i have that same fabric!! i found it on sale for 3 bucks a yard at joann’s and made a built by wendy top that i wear ALL THE TIME and get a ton of compliments on. of course i have yet to post it here. great job on the anda. isn’t it a great simple pattern that you can alter a ton of ways? i like your choice of the turned up sleeves with the purple lining and buttons. very creative!!!

    Love this, and the fabric is gorgeous. At first glance I thought it was a jumper; that’d be cute too!

    Hey I think I have some of that fabric! I like it with the Anda pattern! I’m using mine for a reversible bag.

    Very cute. It’s simple but has nice detail. The fabric is nice too. Looks so comfortable.
