Trial and Error Anda
Added Jul 21, 2008
My fabric stash was decreasing so I was trying to figure out what to do. I was wondering if I should try altering a pattern here and then this challenge came up. Here’s my entry.
For the bodice I used the Anda top part and changed the neckline. From there I just did my best to fit it to my body. I did gathers between the bodice and the, sewn in, belt as that was part of the Anda look. I kept the sleeves as they were, just made the holes a bit smaller.
For the skirt I used it as it was, just lengthened it. In the front I used pleats and in the back gathering. For the neck- and sleeve lines I used ribbons which made the neckline a bit stiff. I put a zipper in the side since the belt is fitted to my body.
Striped fabric (don’t know which material, but it was cheap!), cotton ribbon, invisible zipper.
