By Hand London
Buy the Anna Dress sewing pattern from By Hand London. Anna is an effortless dress featuring double pleats at the bust, kimono sleeves and a panelled A-line skirt. Variations include both slash and v-neck options, plus midi and maxi skirt possibilities and a dramatic thigh-high split. Super quick and simple to make, cut it short for the perfect festival dress, or make it worthy of the red carpet with a maxi skirt and thigh-high split.
Suggested fabrics: Lightweight woven fabrics with a bit of body are ideal, such as rayon, silk crepe de chine, silk charmeuse, chiffon, wool crepe. However, stable fabrics will work too, such as quilting cotton, lawn, batiste, shirting, voile, broderie anglaise, silk habotai. Try stitching pennies into the hem to give your skirt more schwing!
