I am currently working on the By Hand London Ana dress. When I say currently, I actually mean I have been working on this dress for the last month. Yes, things are moving slowly on it. This was(is) supposed to be a muslin, but if I can get it to fit well, I might actually wear it out of the house.
The fabric is a really cheap polyester , and it frays like its life depended on it. The fit seems to be ok, but I need to chop off a couple of inches at the hem.
The back looks a bit dodgy. I think I need to use smaller seam allowances at the back, and also put in some shoulder darts because it feels big there.
So far I am loving the pattern. I really love how simple it is to sew, and how elegant it looks. I have a liberty silk fabric I bought at Classics Fabric on Goldhawk road for £6/metre, which I intend to use to make this dress. But first things first, get the fit right Dibs.
