Another By Hand London–First Anna


By the time you read this I am on my way  to meet some lovely ladies in London among them:– Amity – Lolita Patterns, Clare –SewDixieLou. I am so excited. Can’t wait to  meet them this is my first crafty meet up.

But I am supposed to  share with you  my fist Anna dress. I started it at the same time as the sew along  – http://byhandlondon.com/2013/08/28/are-you-ready-for-the-anna-dress-sewalong/made by the girls at By Hand London. But I got distracted a little by my coat.

However, last night I finally managed to hand sew the hem. Its great. So love it. No adjustments were needed.  The only thing I do not like is that I am crap at inserting the invisible zip. You can see the bloody  think. Next time I will follow at the instructions including ironing it before. But the good news is this time the waist meets perfectly on the zip.

Fancy dress! Smile And  for this one I did not even have to buy  any fabric. I used some that was already in my stash that’s how I ended up making a two tone one Smilesimona 1

I don't really like talking about myself. But, I love sewing and after reading a lot of blogs on the internet about it, I've decided to give it a go as well. I am Romanian born, but live in the UK. I am a bit selfish when it comes to sewing. I tend to make stuff more for myself. Others have to go through a lot of torture in order for me to make something. My mum did it twice. Well I only wanted to make the dresses fit her perfectly. And in the end they looked great.

  1. Have a great time in London, i won’t be there to curb your fabric shopping ! Lol….. Should I ring the shops and warn them your on your way?

    1. Today was great. Been good though only got a souvenir from Liberty shop in London. But tomorrow me and Amity are going to hit some fabrics shops 😉

  2. Those colors together look surprisingly awesome! Nicely done! I used Collette and Gertie invisible zipper tutorials after my first invisible zip was crap. The last few have been beautiful! ~Laurie

  3. Your dress looks great! and seems to fit perfectly. You might think you haven’t done a great job on the zip but I bet all the people out there who don’t sew won’t notice – they’ll just be envious of your skills. I must get myself an Anna pattern before too long.

    1. 😍thanks. To who I showed it said its nice and did not mention the zip. Probably they did not even notice. Just I know!,
