Singapore, Singa...






My third Anna (one in between that I’ve yet to post!) and first maxi and v-neck version. I am certainly getting my money’s worth from this By Hand London pattern!

I used a super soft and silky rayon in a bright and tropical print which makes me happy every time I wear it! French seamed throughout and hand stitched (yes, even the hem!), I had a little trouble with the neckline, but I think it is sufficiently stabilised now… Read more on my blog

      Thank you! That’s very sweet of you to say! I find it really hard to remember how to smile naturally when there’s a camera so this is a rare occurrence!

    Ooooh, colourful! That’s absolutely gorgeous – I bet it’s a dream to wear! Can you actually just walk down the street without dancing and gliding? Hope you’re enjoying it! And I like that bangle with it too!

      Thank you! It’s certainly a very colourful dress – I get all kinds of looks when I wear it, but that could be the dancing…! I think I have a new favourite fabric type now – this is just lovely and soft to wear! I bought the bangle years ago in the UK, but keep losing it – grrrr!

      Ha ha! Thank you, Mary! It’s very comfortable and light – perfect for drinking cocktails in! (although I’m more of a margarita girl!)

      Thank you, Sassy! I think I need to stop making this pattern now! Maybe one more for the sew-a-long though…! Are you joining in?
