The Anemery Dress

Friday, December 5, 2014


You guys, it happened.... my blog got boring!

I really didn't mean for it to turn into one of those 'all about my patterns' blogs, because, I reeeeally like sewing other people's patterns. And it's been way too long, so, I'm sorry (I know, it's my blog, I can do what I like with it, blah blah. But still, let's be honest, even I was bored!!)

I actually finished this dress before we moved into our house at the beginning of the year. I wore it on my birthday for Me Made May and then I never actually got around to blogging about the pretty little thing that it is. So, here it is!

I've called it the Anemery dress for fairly obvious reasons - it's the Anna Bodice and the Emery skirt.



Now, is it just me or does Anemery remind you of that scene in Finding Nemo where they can't pronounce anemone? Every time I say Anemery I feel like I should be saying anemone. Monemone? Namenome?

Anyway, I digress.

The fabric is a beautiful Japanese lawn, that I should have underlined at the bodice, but didn't (I hope it holds up!) that is covered in a lovely paisley print - which, might I add, look like microscopic sea creatures...totally not planned.



A quick and easy dress to stitch up, just like my other Anna and Emery.

Have you made an Anemery? Are you tempted? I totally recommend it :)

And, here's to more 'not all about my patterns' posts. I hope...

  1. So much fun! Cute dress! Hurrah for blogging for fun again. Not that I minded your pattern posts but I always thought "Man she's working a lot."

    1. Thanks Em!! Yeah, I was working a lot, but it didn't really feel it! Which isn't a bad thing I suppose :)

  3. It's really cute. Love the fact it has a bit of a sleeve overhang... as some of us don't like to show off the top of our arms! Like the fabric too :)

  5. I'm totally in love with this dress! I still haven't been able to get the anna bodice to fit like I want it to, but this is some serious inspiration!

    1. I love the Anna bodice and for me it fit pretty much perfectly straight out of the box. It's such a lovely bodice so I hope you're able to work out your fitting issues!

  6. I live this, the fabric is perfect for it. I live the name! I've not made an Anemery (please it's so much easier to call it anemone!) but I did made a Gabrianna in June which was the Anna bodice and the Gabriola skirt from Sewaholic. Another match made in heaven!

    1. Hehe, yes, let's just say anenome, it's so much easier and means I don't have to think about it :)

  7. It's very pretty, I only have the Anna so can't do an Anemery, but suspect I could fudge something similar; just as soon as I get some time to myself!

    1. Totally easy to fudge, just some rectangles of fabric and an inseam pocket pattern (or just make one up!) and you're good to go :) I was just being lazy!

  9. Boring? Never, love reading about your new patterns, always inspiring :-) This is a really cute mash-up. Lovely (and totally appropriate) fabric too, great make!

  10. I love that movie (I can speak whale too you know!)
    I made a dress very similar mashing the Anna with a dirndl skirt - it's a great combination and yours is lovely. Merry Xmas!

Thank you so much for stopping by to leave me a comment, like most people, I really do appreciate them all!

Due to the large amount of spam I seem to be receiving for some strange reason, comments may take longer to be published than usual. Apologies!
