ANNA DRESS • Pattern
By By Hand London, Anna Dress is a paper sewing pattern.
Garment Details: An effortless dress featuring double pleats at the bust, grown-on sleeves and a panelled a-line skirt. Variations include both slash and v-neck options, plus midi and maxi skirt possibilities and a dramatic thigh high split. Super quick and simple to make, cut it short for the perfect festival dress, or make it worthy of the red carpet with a maxi skirt and thigh high split.
Sizing: Multi-sized sewing pattern from B Cup UK 6-24 / US 2-20 and D Cup UK 16-34 / US 12-30.
*Please note - dressmaker's cup sizes have absolutely nothing in common with bra sizes! Dressmaker's cup sizes relate to the ratio between your high bust and full bust measurements, whereas your bra size relates to the ratio between your full bust and under bust measurements. A dressmaker's B cup indicates that the full bust that is 2" larger than the high bust, while a dressmaker's D cup indicates that the full bust that is 4" larger than the high bust.
Fabric Suggestions: Lightweight woven fabrics with a bit of body are ideal – rayon, silk crepe de Chine, silk charmeuse, chiffon, wool crepe etc. However, stable fabrics will work too, such as – quilting cotton, lawn, batiste, shirting, voile, Broderie Anglaise, silk habotai etc. Try stitching pennies into the hem to give your skirt more schwing!
