Sewn by Leah, The Sewing Blonde
Pattern: Anna Maria Horner Evening Empire Dress, View A
Fabric: Lightweight cotton, lined in thin cotton jersey
Modifications: Leah writes, “Complete honesty: I like my dresses short so I cut, like, 4″ off the pattern length. If you do not like your dresses short, this pattern will be plenty long enough for you as is.” Leah also cut the jersey skirt lining at least 15″-20″ smaller around than the outer skirt to reduce bulk.
You can see lots more pictures and learn more about Leah’s experience with the pattern on her blog.
