It was kind of scary seeing Anita in such a cool maxi dress. She suddenly looked so much older. I think she felt it too cause she turned the attitude way up. Needless to say she really loves her new dress.
The Akinori has been on my to do list forever. After seeing so many gorgeous ones in my FB and Insta feed earlier this summer I knew it had to be my first sew after our summer holiday. Finally I have my very own Akinori!
It does look like wrap dresses are the thing these days. Usually I’m about a year or two behind on what’s in, but I actually have sewn a few both true and faux wrap dresses both in jersey and woven.
