An Anna for Gita

My cousin’s daughter is getting married on Cup weekend in Melbourne. The ceremony will be in town, with a reception out in the Mornington Peninsula at one of the wineries. Should be beautiful. I used up my “The Fabric Store” coupon from The Craft Sessions on a beautiful piece of silk crepe de chine, thinking to make a simple but elegant elastic-waisted dress for myself.

She came over last night, and told me she didn’t have anything to wear to the wedding, so I jumped at the opportunity, and offered to make her a dress. After pouring over all my patterns, she rejected this, rejected that, and finally settled on an Anna. The long version. With a v-neckline. Version 2. Showing her the stunning Anna Rose sewn by the lovely SewBusyLizzy was what made up her mind. I have to admit, that’s one of my very favourite Anna makes, and I’m so excited to be making one for Gita. We’re going fabric shopping on Saturday morning. Will post again then.
