Anni Building Block


The Anni Building Block sewing pattern from Named. By combining different blocks of this mix-and-match pattern, you can sew up to 36 different variations! The pattern includes a bodice with flattering princess seams. There are three neckline options (V- or O-neck, and a beautiful combination of a V-neck and a Peter Pan collar) and three sleeve options (a classic T-shirt sleeve, a beautiful long bell sleeve and a cold shoulder ruffle sleeve). Or if you don’t fancy any of those, you can also sew a sleeveless version! For the bottom half of the pattern, the options include a beautiful knee-length pencil skirt, long wide-leg trousers or shorts with show-stopping bell-shaped leg frills.

Suggested fabrics: Light or medium weight woven fabric with drape. This is essential for the ruffles and sleeve frills for them to drape beautifully. The fabric for the bodice, Peter Pan collar, skirt, trousers and shorts can be less drapey, for example cotton or cotton lawn.

Fabric requirements: Please check the fabric requirements chart. To work out your total fabric requirement, add the amount needed for the bodice, the amount needed for the bottom half (e.g. skirt or trousers), and the amount needed for any sleeves, frills, etc.

Sizing: EU 32 – 50 (approx. UK 4/6 – 22). Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.

Notions: Fusible interfacing (25 – 70 cm/1/2 – 1 yd); invisible zipper (V-neck: 55 cm/22″, O-neck and Peter Pan collar: 60 cm/24″); a hook and eye.
