Navy Blue Anda with Flowers

Added Jul 20, 2008

by vanimaandune

Sometown, Ohio, ...






This Anda dress was made from a thrifted curtain/ex-sheet. I shortened it for my petite self according to the very helpful how to. Instead of the drawstring closure, I added belt in a contrasting fabric. I also did the topstitching in white and stenciled flowers onto the finished dress to give it some pop.

Material Notes

Thrifted cotton in navy blue and white.

    Oh my. That was a real nice touch with the colour contrast and stenciled flowers. Totally digging your duck-tape dress form as well!

    I was going to do a how-to on the stenciling, but there’s already an excellent one by Kasia26. I’ve added it to the how to links. The only thing I did differently was I had trouble getting enough paint to transfer by dabbing, so I went over the pattern with a brush.
