Amy Butler's Anna Tunic

*I had a really hard time taking pictures of this outfit for some reason. I guess it's hard to take a picture of your whole body without someone helping. All well. You'll get the idea.

This is Amy Butler's Anna Tunic pattern. I so love it. I love the style. It is incredibly comfortable and easy to add a cardigan over or a shirt under. The pattern can be a cami, tunic, mini dress or knee length dress. I chose the knee length dress.

The pattern was incredibly easy to understand and had very few pieces. It went together pretty quickly and I didn't have any confused moments. I would say this is a good beginner project.
I did change the pattern slightly so that it can be reversible. I mean, if you're going to the effort of lining it you may as well get two dresses in one. I'm so glad I did. I love both of them. I also ended up not making the belt. It seemed a little too 'home sewn' for my liking. I just plan on wearing a regular belt or leaving it a little loose. I have yet to make the flower but I do want to.
I want to do a tunic and maybe a cami in the very near future.

I just found your blog, and know this post is pretty old, but would you mind sharing how you altered the pattern? I have made the dress and tunic and love both, and the thought of being able to make it reversible is really exciting!
