Criss Cross Maxi Anda

Added Jul 17, 2008

by maldrich

Travelers Rest, ...






Anda altered to have a criss cross bodice and a longer skirt. Also with an Obi belt and a ribbon belt: I don’t know which one I like better! I uploaded a how to to show how I altered this.

Material Notes

Cotton/poly? mix from mom’s old stash, Cotton/poly? mix from Walmart’s cheap table for lining/belts. Ribbon Trim. Thread.





Burdastyle for challenging us all to create something new out of their patterns.

    Hi is your howto on this variation still available? I cant seem to find it and Im a bit of a novice so not able to work it out myself. I like the Anda but having larger chest the crossover would be more flattering than the high neckline. If you are able to help that would be great I know youre probably a busy Mom of twins (very cute!)

    The fabric and color choice are so pretty for your skin tone :D. I especially love the look of the wide ribbon belt and the cross over top is great! Wonderful job!

    A very pretty version of Anda. I like it with the ribbon belt – it gives it a “Regency” feel. The sunflowers are beautiful too.

    It’s very pretty, fits you well and the colour combination is great. Unfortunately it’s also close to what I’m working on for my Anda, not exactly alike though. I even got a striped fabric!

    Wow – I immensely enjoyed your how-to and I admire your new Anda. I especially like the one with the obi belt. Excellent job!

    It’s a very pretty dress. It looks lovely on you. Either belt looks good. :-)

    Really nice variation on the anda. I like both belts, too.
