Remember back last October when I had Nani Iro envy? After all the effort that went into tracking down this fabric, it took me 10 months to use it! As I’m sure fellow fabric hoarders will understand, it was just too precious to cut right into. The perfect plan had to be devised.
I purchased this silk voile in October with the intent to make a Lonsdale dress. By the time I got around to making it in February I realized I didn’t have enough and emailed Alice at Backstitch* to see if they had any more. Alas, the line had been discontinued and I couldn’t find it anywhere else. So, what to do when life hands you not enough fabric? Make another version of a dress you love!
I was blown away by the pattern hack on the Anna dress by Finch Sewing Studio! I knew I had to get my hands on some of Alison Glasses’ new fabric line and when I saw the Anna dress hack I knew they were a match made in sewing heaven. The V neck version with the V’s? What could be better suited.
With the Anna pattern and the amazing Emmy Grace fabric from Art Gallery, what could go wrong? Famous last words.
