My first Anda! So, without the belt it looks a little like a hospital gown :) But, the belt makes a world of difference. I had to cut the pattern down a bit since it starts at a 38, and I didn’t use the elastic/casing or the bias tape. Also the fabric was cheap, so it was more for practice than anything. I’m going to make a better one out of nice fabric later!
The obi close-ups reveal my lack of experience with top-stitching :) Luckily, people don’t normally look that close! You can also see the fabric a little better.
