Frida Kahlo Anna dress

This pattern was great! The By Hand London Anna dress is gorgeous and the Frida fabric was brilliant! I made this as a gift for my Frida-mad sister, who was totally over the moon when she received it. So much fun to make! :-)

Anna Dress, Simple to make, flattering to wear

My title says it all. I am short and plus sized and had some concerns that purchasing a preprinted pattern would not fit well and that there could be problems. I was delighted to discover that the pattern was simple to sew and once made fit well. I may try the long version next time. My dress is in cotton poplin.
