Sew Over It - Eve Dress
Floaty, feminine and romantic, variation 1 makes the ultimate summer wedding outfit. It dreamily harks back to the 70s with its dipped hem, on-trend statement sleeve and gently relaxed fit. This variation will have you dancing around the garden barefoot in no time.
Understated and sleek, variation 2 features a more contemporary silhouette, with narrow elbow-length sleeves and a level knee-length hem. Elegant and wearable year-round, it’s a great wardrobe staple; a sure-fire go-to for Friday evening post-work drinks.
Both dresses feature a pretty gathered yoke, wrap over front and a long tie closure.
Sizes: The Eve Dress comes in UK sizes 8-20.
Level: The Eve Dress sewing pattern is designed for sewers with some experience of lightweight drapey fabrics.
Fabric recommendations: Eve works beautifully in lightweight woven fabrics with some drape, such as rayon, viscose, crepe and georgette. Less experienced sewers could try a lightweight cotton such as lawn or voile.
