How is everyone? It’s still bloody cold here and very very rainy which means that I’m still in the kitchen hugging the Aga (I love the Aga) but that’s ok because the kitchen island is the perfect height for the tracing and cutting out of patterns. I’ve gotten quite a few done this week, mostly ones that will be used for Christmas pressies but also the Sewaholic Minoru jacket and the vintage Butterick 7461 dressing gown I’ve been planning for ages.
They aren’t what I’m going to be showing you today though…..
……it’s another Anna (I promise I really do make other things!). I made this Anna dress with the birthday fabric Big Bird and Little Bother got me this year (back in April) it’s a gorgeous tropical print lawn from Truro Fabrics and I love it. It was a little see through so I underlined the whole dress in plain white cotton lawn which has made for some really pretty insides, I was cursing my love of this pattern when I was finishing off all the seams with bias binding but I’m so glad I did. I also took my other “proper” Anna dress out to Saudi with me and Papa kindly took some piccies……
…….as you can probably tell I love this pattern and I’m sure there will be more in my future for now though I’m planning warm snuggly coats and flannel lined dressing gowns…..did I mention I hate being cold?
