Wrap Anda

Added Jul 26, 2008

Porto, Portugal






I always want a wrap dress! Because I think it was very Japanese style (mine is not so Japanese, anyway!!). And I never really like the Anda dress, because I like it more fited, but when I read about the mini challenge, makes light in my head (and a lamp appears too in the top, like the movies!). So I pick the things I love in the Anda dress, that is the sleeves and the A line, and fit it more, change the front part designing a curve and duplicate it to make the two sides, then I made the two belts (with 1,5m each) and sew it to the sides. Then I experiment and I was immediately in love!! I fell so well in it! It’s was so good to make it, I need to thank you for this mini challenge, that invite me to make some thing different!!

Material Notes

Grey cotton jersey

    You did a great job of changing the Anda! Well done, it looks fantastic on you and should definitely do a ‘how to’ for the changes. Once again, it looks great!

    Such a simple idea to transform Anda into a wrap dress but no one did it, and it looks absolutely different and unique! Excellent work! I like the fabric, color – everything! You are so cool in this dress!

    I love this. I also prefer things more fitted, and this version looks like it might actually make the Anda flattering on me. I hope you do get a how-to up!

    Thank you, thank you all! I’m so proud! I’ll try to do a How To, because it’s quite simple to alter and you should make it in different shapes and materials! And it’s really comfortable, and with this tiny jersey is so fresh when you walk!!

    Of all the Anda creations, this is the one I would want to make . It’s creative but also very wearable and flattering. I agree with Wilson 80197. I would pick you as the winner.

    This turned out lovely! Looks really comfortable too. I really like the curved bottom on the front of the dress. Great job!

    Really great! Looks so cool and way better than the original Anda I think. Also I think I figured out how you did it, could you make a How-To? That would be really cool :)
