Anna/Kew Rifle Paper Co dress

I’ve done a few different hacks of the Kew dress and Holly bodice but this time I decided to use the Anna bodice (By Hand London). It’s one of my favourite bodices to sew up, so simple and easy to adjust. I think paired with the Kew skirt it’s quite a 1940s silhouette so I love it in this classic red floral rayon by Rifle Paper Co. I bought it from Sister Mintaka, she always has a fab selection of fabrics.

I only needed 2 metres for the dress and it was only cut in 6 pieces in total so a super simple make. I used bias binding to finish the neckline and made a sash from offcuts.

It’s one of my most worn recent makes and I’ve already made another in some more Rifle Paper co rayon and earmarked some of my stash for some more!
