i tried following the Anda pattern, but it’s been so long since i’ve used a pattern, it was a disaster. I tried my best to follow along, but I cut the fabric wrong, sides didn’t match, etc., so I altered it to the best of my ability.
I raised the hem quite a bit, added a zipper to the back middle, and added a 5" white satin trim at the bottom. I actually really love the way it turned out. I also added a belt to give it some shape.
