Heya! I’m so so pumped about this dress. I will be guaranteed to be spotted around town wearing it. Even though now the 3/4 length sleeves are a bit warm, come fall it’ll be awesome. Even in the winter over some leggings it’ll be perfect, throw on a cardi and I’ll be cozy. I dream about fall when the weather gets hot and humid here in Wisconsin. Sorry, but I like wearing clothes!

This is Sara Lawson’s new fabric Jungle Ave in the loveliest knit ever. It’s super soft and washed up really great. Art Gallery did it up right! I can’t wait for all the other collections to release their knit and voiles. So dreamy for clothes.

I’ve made a regular Plantain a few weeks ago. Plus, ever since the pattern came out I’ve had Paunnet’s post about altering it into a dress on the brain. I don’t wear dresses too often, but a cozy knit one, yes.

Hope you’re having the best summer ever wherever you are! We’ve been jumping from one park & rec program to the next, and it’s been great! Plus I’ve been running! My husband and I took up running earlier this spring and whew, a workout! Our last run was 4.6 miles, farthest I’ve ever run. Plus it keeps my mind from going a little crazy.

    I didn’t know you live in Wisconsin! I’m in Madison…the weirdly cool weather this morning was great for a run. I’ve been exploring the trails by Picnic Point lately.
    I’m such a slow sewist (I’m more of a knitter, really) but I’ve been wanting to try out some of your patterns, esp the poolside tote.

    Love it! I’ve been considering making it, but I didn’t know if it would be too shapeless. Obviously not! Belted it is adorable. Cute shoes, too.

    Love the dress and that fabric!

  13. Emily 07.15.2014 at 3:23 pm #

    LOve it! I wish I had your sewing talents!!! I can craft sew – but only wish I had the talents for clothing!!

    Very cute, looks so comfortable too.

    That fabric is great. I love how the black ‘leaks’ into the white dots. Again, another professional looking piece of clothing.

    It’s completely amazing, Anna. It’s so perfect for you! I love it. I’ll have to get my hands on some Art Gallery knit!

    Just lovely! I’ve had this tee pattern printed our for months and haven’t even taped it together yet! You look great in that dress and cute shoes!
