Anna's Angel Dress



Anna's angel dress is pretty much finished now. A couple of people asked to see the whole thing, so here it is. I am notoriously bad at hems, so I'm a bit shy about showing this part. This is the third attempt and it's not too much of a disaster... I think ;) I would like to do a fitting on Anna and a final cut of the flutter sleeves to get that 'just right' flattering length. This is actually a basic design that I've developed and reworked on several pieces. I'm a big fan of having a fabric panel at the front of a jersey piece (so forgiving to the post-bubba tum!). If Anna lets me I'll show a photo of her wearing it! :)

I love the sleeves and crossover. But most of all the panel down the front. Very flattering!

I love all those pin tuck pleats (still loving them, even after I've been sewing them for ages now...).
This is such a special dress - I'd love to see it modeled on Anna (if she's not blog shy).
