An important note about Cup Sizing
Dressmaker's cup sizes have absolutely nothing in common with bra sizes! Dressmaker's cup sizes relate to the ratio between your high bust and full bust measurements, whereas your bra size relates to the ratio between your full bust and under bust measurements. A dressmaker's B cup indicates that the full bust that is 2" larger than the high bust, while a dressmaker's D cup indicates that the full bust that is 4" larger than the high bust.
About the Anna Dress
The By Hand London Anna Dress is an effortless dress featuring double pleats at the bust, grown-on 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. It is 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.
For your Anna Dress, lightweight woven fabrics with a bit of body are ideal. Select 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!
