my anda dress

8.17.2010


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


jump


jump!

  2. 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?).

  5. 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.

  10. 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!)

  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.
