Excuse the daft picture i was trying to flap…Thanks again to AnaJan and her amazing patterns here’s my version of the dots invasion…but with tiny birds :-) shortened the length also for a little summer dress (crazy really as it hasn’t stopped raining for about 2 weeks). Fantastic pattern to follow very clear and easy.
Oh…and a little wristlet purse thing with the leftovers just for fun.

Material Notes

‘Park Slope’ Birds cotton
some kind of black crepe stuff i had as scraps, zip




Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual


AnaJan! thanks again for the patterns

    Oh, wow! This is beautiful. I didn’t really like the dress pattern, but if something like this came out of it, I should give it a shot. =] The fabric is lovely, by the way.

    i love this too! it’s so great to see multiple versions of patterns come to life! this short version is great.

    not to get too personal, but, i’m wondering if this dress works with a bra. any thoughts?

    Emlj, you’re getting better and better. The dress turned out really cute, and I love those birds. And, thank you for posting pictures, I am really flattered you use my patterns. Did you have fitting problems with this one? I have just realized that this pattern has a bit more ease than the African dress.

    Wow I liked this one… was it hard sewing the bustpart? The black straps?

    When it comes to rain… Think of it as a very good thing cus then you can sew a lot =)

    This is really great! And really suits you! I might have to get over my pattern phobia and have a go at making one of these for myself! Well done!
