The Anna Anda

This panel of fabric used to be a curtain in a home I no longer live in. I’ve had it folded on my shelf for about a year with no idea how to use it since it was so narrow. Inspired by all of the Grosgrain Frock by Fridays, I finally decided to give the Anda dress a go since the yardage worked out perfectly for what I had. I was even lucky enough to center the pattern! Just never mind the unfinished hem….I wasn’t sure how much I liked the dress to finish it off.

    You must have had very cool curtains because this is so beautiful! I am never too interested in hems either… :)

    Wow they were some particularly awesome curtains. Nice brave choice. I’ve often wondered about the odd piece of curtain fabric being used for clothes.

    I think it looks fabulous – you should totally finish it! If you find you don’t wear it, but it for sale on etsy :) I’m sure someone would love to own it!
