Polka Dotted Anna

Hi! I’m Kathy from The Nerdy Seamstress and this is my first post for The Monthly Stitch. I’m super excited to find this because it kind of gives me the sense of community I’ve been longing for. I love this month’s challenge because I love sewing dresses.

After seeing so many lovely versions of the Anna dress around the blogosphere, I decided to create one for myself. There are two lengths for the Anna dress, and I opted for the longer one. I don’t normally wear long dresses because I feel that it will overwhelm my size. I’m quite a shorty. I don’t know if it does, but I really like the Anna dress and the length.

I’ve already made the shorter version, and I have to say, I love both! It’s my favorite pattern, and my go to pattern. I want to make a closet full of Anna dresses.

Please click on over to my blog to read more about my polka dotted Anna dress. I hope to find you there!

  1. I love it! I just received my “Anna” in the mail I want to sew it but the weather is getting colder here in Seattle. I may have to put it off until the spring, while looking for the perfect fabric.I was worried about the longer version since I am short also. I will go for it. Thanks for sharing both versions.

    • Thank you, Jen! Oh, you’ll love the Anna dress if you can wait until spring of course. 😛 May be you can sew it with wool? That’s what I want to try one of these days if I could find the perfect wool fabric.

    • Thank you! The gals at BHL are amazing! I can’t wait to make more! After the Anna dress, I went ahead and bought the Charlotte skirt and the Victoria blazer. I can’t wait for it to come and try it out.

      • I have the Charlotte and Elisalex patterns cut out and in my sewing queue. I’m not much of a blazer gal (more a sweater one) so I didn’t get the Victoria but knowing BHL, the next release will be AWESOME!

    • I bought the Victoria blazer with the Anna dress. I know I have add darts or something to the blazer because I like it fitted rather than boxy. I hope it works out. I broke down and bought the Charlotte skirt because I saw a blogger create an Anna/Charlotte love child that I really, really like. I wanted the Elisalex too, but with the skirt and shipping, I couldn’t justify the price. It was one or the other four me. I chose the skirt. 😛 the girls at BHL are amazing, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with! I’m sure your Charlotte and Elisalex will turn it great! 🙂
