Anda Summer Fantasy

Added Jul 23, 2008

by olyaboieru

Kishinev, Moldov...






It was a real fantasy dress. From the moment I started to transform the Anda pattern till the end, I had no idea how it will look like. Of course, there was some initiate idea of my Anda but not a clear one!
I bought these too fabrics a long time ago. There were two pieces of 1,5m (with flowers) and 2 m (TOW with the strips). The fabrics are different, both polyester though but the white and blue colors and the style are the same so I bought them to mix in some creation in the future.
All this time I couldn’t find any proper model for these fabrics so I guess Anda minichallenge was a destiny for these materials.
The front belt part was the hardest thing. I wanted to make accent whether on Bust or Waist, so I moved this front belt from chest to waist and backwards. I even tried this front detail as a bra right on the bust. Until I found a perfect position for it, somewhere between chest and waist. So I am very pleased with the result.
I also made a tulle skirt for additional volume as a variation.
I really wanted to transform Anda into something very gentle, light with a feminine look. I hope I achieved this result.
There is a How to to this Anda dress, I’ll be honored if it helps you to do your own summer fantasy Anda!

Material Notes

A fabric with the flowers -polyester
Fabric with White&Blue Strips – polyester
An old belt with a blue rose (I used only rose fastener)
White tulle

    I love mixing the Fabrics I hate polyster and i think that you don’t like “symmitric” thing but it’s nice

    Oh this dress is so beautiful! I love all the little details that you added :D. The different shoulder sleeves, the asymetric skirt line, the blue rose that fastens the center… It is amazing and pretty! Great photos as well :D

    Wow, your dress is so different. I would not say that it’s Anda pattern. You look gorgeous. Beautiful picks.

    Achieved your result? By far and away! This is so pretty! AnaJan is right, it doesn’t even look like the Anda! You have inspired me to start “fantasizing” my own patterns. I’m in awe. P.S. I always love looking at your pictures! You’re an absolute model!

    I would call it “Anda under cover”, since the original pattern is barely recognizable! The dress is really interesting, very much summerish, and so right for the seaside. You definitely achieved the result you had on your mind! So well done!
