Introducing our latest pattern - the Annie Dress
! This loose, light maxi features front and back yoke with separate side
panels and sewn in pockets.
The dress is gathered beneath the yoke while
the cutaway armholes extend into shoulder straps to create a sweet
and flattering neckline.
The plain fabric in Lisa's version (pictured above and below) is our Hartford Ink
linen and the contrast front yoke is made from a vintage Japanese cotton sourced from the stash.
My black version (below) is made up in Hartford Black
and the yoke features our Black Embroidered Eyelet (linen with cotton embroidery - available Chatswood
Coral made her gorgeous spotted version (below) in navy/string Japanese linen. There's still a wee bit of this fabric left at Surry Hills
And how great does it look with those red shoes...?
And speaking of red, let's finish of this post with a suitably festive Annie. Gabby's version (below) was made up in our Hartford White
linen and the front yoke is a white cotton eyelet (available Chatswood only).
Once complete, we overdyed it using Crimson iDye and ended up with the most luscious raspberry shade.
Most of these samples were completed in the last few weeks,
have already been well
worn and we're pleased to report that this
design has passed the hot summer's day test with FLYING colours! The Annie Dress pattern is now available
in both hardcopy and PDF print-at-home/print copy shop versions. Each pattern includes sizes Australian sizes XXS-XS-S-M-L and XL.
