Anna Dress

Anna Dress


This is an intermediate class teaching the techniques used in a princess seam dress with an invisible zipper.


The Anna is an effortless dress featuring double pleats at the bust, kimono sleeves and a panelled a-line skirt. Variations include both slash and v-neck options, plus midi and maxi skirt possibilities and a dramatic thigh high split. Super quick and simple to make, cut it short for the perfect festival dress, or make it worthy of the red carpet with a maxi skirt and thigh high split.


Lightweight woven fabrics with a bit of body are ideal – rayon, silk crepe de Chine, silk charmeuse, chiffon, wool crepe etc. However, stable fabrics will work too, such as – quilting cotton, lawn, batiste, shirting, voile, Broderie Anglaise, silk habotai etc. Try stitching pennies into the hem to give your skirt more schwing!
