Anna Tunic


I've been wanting to make the Anna Tunic's pattern from Amy Butler since a long time now. When I saw this beautiful fabric from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden line in Sewlovefabrics shop, I thought it was the time to make the dress and also I remembered I had this other pattern mostly the same for Celita's size.
I think the dresses ended looking amazingly!!! The dress was a bit difficult for me to make, I think it was more a language problem for me than the pattern itself, lol... I did "invented" the yoke finish becase I couldn't understand what the pattern called to make to finish it, lol... 
But I think the final effect is nice and I was so happy to be dressed the same as my little baby!

I love the fabric you chose for your dress! Great job improvising with the yoke, it really turned out nice!

I'm finding making clothes so much harder than making dresses. You've done a great job though. Love it. That fabric is so cute. I'm in love with Pop Garden. I just made a big sofa pillow out of fabric from that line.
