I've been meaning to write a quick post about the few differences in the Lila patterns. The original Lila, shown at top, is written from the bottom up. For Anthology 2, I really wanted to re-visit the silhouette, but this time from the top down. But those aren't the only differences between the patterns. The top down version also has a longer body length (16.75" rather than 14.5") and there is also one extra set of short rows shaping the hem making it slightly more scooped out.
