Yesterday I shared all the details behind the Lucy for Women. Today I am sharing the details for the Anna Top/Dress. It is inspired by the Maggie Mae Tunic and Dress for girls. It was another pattern that was often requested for women, but I made some design edits. It has the same sleeve style and curved bodice but instead of having a pleated skirt I did a solid piece with a slight A-Line.
The top has great flow and a very flattering drape. Bust darts add some slight shaping to the top.
The pattern works with almost any type of fabric, (knits and wovens even) I loved making this one with a lace so it had a bit of a sheer element to it. I love how the curved bodice frames the bust line, it looks great on everyone.
Shortened up I am excited to make a few as swim covers, I love anything that just slips on and goes.
So there is the Anna.
I just loved seeing the testers tops. Here are just a few of the amazing tops my tester group made, from left to right top to bottom:
Natasha made this stunning dress using a silk for the top.
Amy made this mustard floral top and I love the linen like fabric for the top.
Deana added piping along the curve and I just LOVE that little pop.
Trinh used a chiffon for the top and I love that sheer element.
Jenni used a great print with the darker solid I love the combo.
Emily went light and neutral with the great large floral for the bottom.
Amy added the contrast around the neck and sleeve and I love the pop of color, also posed with her son who is wearing the new Helter Skelter Tee she tested as well.
Rebbeca put floral and pink together and I love the bright color so perfect for spring
Erin mixed to solids and I just love the navy and crisp white.
