Seven Little Dresses!

The Anna dress pattern by farbenmix has to be one of my all-time favorites! It's easy enough for beginners and so easily modified or embellished that even seasoned seamstresses can enjoy it!

I really enjoy making these dresses and tunics, Leith has several in her wardrobe. I had a request for seven matching, four-way dresses for the granddaughters in a family. They'll be having a family reunion later this summer (and I'm hoping for action shots!).

Here's what seven little Anna dresses look like:


Each dress has four different main fabrics (plus the pink ties and straps). Each fabric can be the front of the dress, for four different looks!

Here you can see the black/colorful fabric to the front, and a hint of the blue/dotty fabric inside.


This shows the blue/dotty and blue/floral fabrics.


It took well over 20 yards of fabric for these dresses, for girls ranging in size from 12mos up to 7/8! I hope they enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!!
