A while ago I saw this dress on Pinterest and fell in love with it.
When I saw By Hand London's Anna pattern I was struck by how similar the shape was, so I set about a search for some similar fabric.
I couldn't find anything exactly the same, but I did find this:
I got this fabric on Ebay, but it's now available from Minerva Crafts.
I started making this version of Anna almost as soon as I'd finished my first. Can you tell I love the pattern?!
I made the maxi length, with the slash neckline and a split that comes to just above my knee. No one needs to see my thighs in a dress split as high as the pattern shows!
Anyway, sunglasses at the ready because here is the result.
I've tried some new locations for my photos too, taking advantage of the nice weather to go into the garden.
Sorry about the strange facial expression of the one above, not sure what I was doing!
I think the last one shows the fabric most accurately, and although there is (almost) no bright pink in the print, I love it with the pink belt.
I finished this dress about 10 days ago and have worn it 3 times already. I call that a success!
I think I want at least one more Anna, but first I've got some other things to finish off.
