The Anna Dress »
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Classic, Cute, Traditional, Retro / Vintage
Apples and Pears by Alexander Henry and a generic matching yellow quilting cotton that I picked up at my local fabric store.
What was your inspiration?
My daughter is starting Junior Kindergarten in the fall and needs some school clothes.
What are you most proud of?
I tried a lot of new things, including a full row of button holes (I'd only done single buttons before). This was the most complicated dress I've made so far.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It was a bit of work but worth the effort. My only disappointment is that is ended up being far too big for my daughter so it will be a while before she can fit into it.
