The Anda Dress

Added Jun 7, 2009

Lisbon, Portugal






This is the second dress I have ever made. Very simple indeed! However, I omitted the casing and the drawstring; instead I made a belt that closes with velcro and has two decorative buttons attached.

    That’s such a pretty dress. I really like the way you’ve bound the neck and sleeve edges with white and echoed it in the belt. I think it makes it look ‘dressier’. This is such a great pattern that you can dress up or down.

    The Anda was my first dress too, though yours looks quite form fitting: perfect job. Not a fan of the baby blue/acqua colour, but that’s just cause it looks dreadful on me.

    Very pretty. The belt with buttons gives this dress a soft look. Great work.
