my anda dress

A little late in wrapping up this project, but I love it’s simple style.  Grosgrain did yet another fabulous Frock by Friday sew-a-long and it was just too fun to pass up.  I chose this beautiful print by Naomi Ito

And for the record it’s the most expensive piece of clothing I own now.  I think it’ll be really great in all seasons.  Maybe with a cardigan and tights for winter? 

Love the way it turned out
and it makes me want to jump

    Cute dress – I’m glad you posted some in color so I could figure out what color it was!!! Wow, can you jump, girl!!! I always enjoy your posts. I’m glad you made something for yourself … you deserve it!

    Ooooo, Anna!! I love it! That fabric is beautiful and you are quite the jumper! I have yet to make mine… I have the fabric (I think it’s enough… did you use as much fabric as the pattern called for?).

  3. Maggie says:

    Awww, love, love,love it!!! I was just thinking to myself that I should try out that pattern…now I really want to do it 🙂 Great fabric choice too, btw!

    Oh, I love it! Great fabric choice! And your pics are adorable–I love the first one especially. So pretty! Makes me excited to make it when I finally get around to it.

    I wish I looked that cool when I jumped. The dress is awesome. When life is a little less intense it’s time to do some sewing for me.

    I love the dress and the cute photos! Now that I see everyone’s finished frocks, I wish I had participated in this one.

    Did you use a double gauze? I have some Nani Iro double gauze that a friend brought back from Japan for me. I just can’t find the perfect patterns to justify cutting into it! (Well, except for 1 print. Which I made into a skirt, that I happen to be wearing right now!)

    Adorable dress. But even cuter jumping seamstress! Good for you sewing a dress for yourself.

  25. what a great choice of fabric! looks great on you, and to have a ‘custom’ piece of clothing be your most expensive is pretty special.
    Glad to see you made something for yourself, we so often forget to do that as crafters 🙂
