Good use of “ya’ll” I think considering the western horses in this dress. You probably do know, but if you don’t, I grew up as a competitive equestrian. I had a white horse and everything. I wasn’t in any way western- I was one of those prissy girls in tall leather boots and fitted jackets. Anyways, I like to think this dress is inspired by a dress I had when I was a teenager which I LOVED but was fast fashion and fell apart pretty quickly. I like to think this is a sort of wild resurrection of that dress, pictured here.
I’m here today to talk about my Named Patterns Ansa Dress! Does anyone else feel like they are constantly resisting the urge to sew a party dress for the sake of “wearable basics” but then when you have a good reason to make a party dress you realize you have no idea what you actually want to make? That was me when I FINALLY got invited to a wedding like situation in Minneapolis
As you may remember, I sewed up a floral Alder earlier in the year and totally loved the pattern. This also was the pattern that pushed me over the edge to start performing full bust adjustments on all of my patterns. I'd love to do a comparison post with a before and after full bust adjustment, so let me know if that would be something you'd be interested in. The floral alder had some discomfort and tightness in the bust, so I sized down the front bodice 2 sizes and performed a 1 inch adjustment.
Long time, no sewing for myself. I actually have a few sewing projects I need to photograph and post here, but firstly I wanted to show off my Lily Blouse from Cocowawa Crafts! The absolutely lovely Ana of Cocowawa sent me this pattern to test, and I felt terrible because it launched right after Sewn Seeds so it took a while for me to actually make it. But once I finally busted it out I totally love it.
