Next up: the Anna dress. For real.

The Jasmine blouse is finished, I just need to take some pictures of it. Preferably outside, because the color and details are hard to catch in flash light. Update will follow soon.

Next up is By Hand London's Anna Dress.

When I planned to make this dress in september I needed the long version in black, to wear to a ballet gala. The pattern got lost in the mail and there was no urge to make the formal Anna any time soon. Sewing plans were piling up and I forgot to return to the pattern. Until recently. Wouldn't it be a nice, comfortable dress, perfect for the holidays when made in a vibrant red ponte knit? Midi, V-neck and long sleeves. This time I'll make it. For real!


  1. That sounds really nice, mom!

  2. A red ponte Anna sounds lovely. I'm just considering my third Anna for New Years Eve.

    1. It's such a versatile pattern. I love how different your Anna's look! I doubt if anyone from outside the sewing community would recognize it as the same pattern. I'll keep an eye on your third one too!

  3. Hi Marianne - I love seeing different versions of the "same"dress. Looking forward to seeing yours - it should be quite striking :)
