Anni Building Block PDF



Buy 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, and three neckline options: V- or O-neck, and a beautiful combination of a V-neck and a Peter Pan collar. There are also three sleeve options including a classic T-shirt sleeve, a beautiful long bell sleeve, and a cold shoulder ruffle sleeve. 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 fabricsChoose a 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 see the fabric requirements chart. Note: to work out the total fabric requirements, add the amount need to make for the bodice and bottom half e.g. skirt or trousers. You will also need to add on any extras for sleeves and frills etc. too.
