I altered the Anda pattern by changing the hemline so it comes up on the side and making the dress MUCH shorter. I also added thick ties on each side at the waist by cutting four triangles out of leftover fabric and sewing them into ties and insetting the ties,into the side seams, the whole dress has french seams. I also stamped flowers onto the dress using a stamp I made out of a potato, I learned this technique from the etsy How-To with Lotta Jansdotter on YouTube. I stamped a zigzag line of flowers from my top left shoulder down to the waist and a cluster of flowers at the bottom right. The dress can be tied in the front or the back.
