The Anna dress…sew excited there’s a Sewalong a coming!!

Ok, first, my apology….I have been so quiet….neglected my blog, I know…this is not wise. In truth, the summer holidays are 6 weeks of a large degree of chaos, lack of routine and generally family life turned upside down! We have not long returned from a holiday in beautiful Brittany, France. It takes such an effort to get back to some degree of ‘normal’ after being away.

I took some crochet and hooked and bumbled my way in calm and peace, by the sea, outside my tent, sitting in the sun….who could ask for more? Pics of one of my completed projects to follow…

I finally completed my dress (post to follow) a huge achievement! In the meantime I’ve seen this just arrive in my inbox….

For those who may not know….this is the beautiful Anna dress from By Hand London….. and guess what….there’s a Sewalong!!!!

I recently bought the pattern after seeing a Handmade Jane version….gorgeous…..and also Lizzy’s version of the midi Anna Blue at Sew Busy Lizzy and let’s not forget the lovely Lauren at Lladybird her silk sexy thigh high split maxi version is hot hot hot let me tell you!

Take a look at these gorgeous ladies’ versions….inspiring!

I’ve NEVER participated in a Sewalong so I’m definitely going to join this….my first one! This dress is being raved about and rightly so! Here’s the link to the Sewalong that starts in September, so there’s time to buy your pattern and supplies!
