Noodlehead   my anda dress sewing

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?).

    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!)

    Beautiful Anna and I love seeing you in some photos! :). Comfortable PLUS cute clothing is the best.

  12. ayumills 08.17.2010 at 4:12 pm #

    Absolutely nice!!! The print is perfect for the dress pattern and it doesn’t even look like it is hand-made! I’d buy one if I saw it a store! You look so happy and that makes me smile ;)

  13. Larissa 08.17.2010 at 4:43 pm #

    great fabric. I’d really like to try one for myself. I have about a million other things piled in front of it though. never stopped me before. ha.

  14. Ady 08.17.2010 at 5:56 pm #

    Wow – you’re a good jumper! That’s a lovely dress and the colour is great on you.

    This one has been on my to-do list as well! It looks gorgeous on you Anna. Perfect fabric, perfect stitching.

    Hooray for making yourself a dress! It’s lovely! And so are you! I’ve been meaning to try one of the dresses she’s been going over. One of these days :)

    Loving the jumping photos. Glad to see a dress has made you that happy! x.

  24. Kari 08.18.2010 at 12:02 pm #

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

  25. Vanessa/NessieNoodle 08.18.2010 at 12:20 pm #

    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 :)

  26. Nat 08.18.2010 at 1:22 pm #

    Those jumps are the jumps of a dancer, no? Beautiful! I just discovered Burda and need to spend some time there. Hmmm…time…. not on my side these days. I’m posting about pouches today- I’ll email you when it’s up!

  27. Larissa 08.18.2010 at 9:03 pm #

    I LOVE a cute dress. I LOVE a great jumping pictures. I want to make that dress now…OK do I say that everytime I see something you’ve done. Haha.
