Friends, I've made the By Hand London Anna dress before, but this time, I was making it for myself. In keeping with the theme of the Sew Sexy Sew Along, I wanted something that made me feel confident and highlighted my favorite features. I wanted a pattern to accentuate my shoulders, neck, clavicle, bosom, and waist. I thought this might be the pattern for me, and indeed, I was right.
I chose a fabric from my stash that didn't have a plan attached to it, and the poly blend flows around my curves like a charm. I feel incredible in this, and paired with my most comfortable heels, I feel sexy. I want to strut outside and drink some fancy cider at an outdoor patio, but alas, it's snowing. This dress will be well loved in the summer, though.
I made the midi length because I am currently falling in love with my legs. Fourteen days straight of working out have created some serious calves, and though they are the reason I need to buy wide knee length boots, I adore them.
I spent most of today covered up in a sweater and pants, and to be wearing something that accentuates my figure and favorite features feels liberating and delicious.
I feel victorious and sexy. I'm glad to have conquered this pattern and to have had this challenge to inspire me to sew something delightful for myself ... even if I can't wear it outside for a few more weeks :)
XOXO and much love,
