This is a variation on the Anda dress. I lowered the waist, created a seam at the waist line and an elastic casing on the inside rather than a drawstring. I also added a decorative ruffle to the collar, to give it that something extra. The material was a challenge. Its some kind of synthetic jersey with a small pleat. Love it, but frustrating. I’m not too experienced with knits but the pattern was simple enough. Overall, love how it came out, Anda is a great pattern.
