Felicity looks so good in my Sew Over It Eve dress that I made her one of her own.
And this time I used a drape-y viscose. See how nicely it hangs?
I was either lazy or efficient (you decide) and used the pattern pieces in my size with just the shoulders trimmed by 2 cm. I’m sure this breaks all sorts of pattern adjustment rules.
Hey I figured the ties would sort out the waist adjustments that were needed and all the blousing through the bodice would hide a multitude of sins.
And it does.
I promise I’ll cut out the right size and do a FBA on the next version. But this one is acceptable don’t you think.?
The wrap front is genius. Hugs your body even when bending forward.
Some clever drafting by Sew Over It going on here. Plus the stay tape keeping the bias under control.
I cut the front skirt a little less full due to fabric restrictions – I folded out about 10 cm at the hem through to zero at the waist in two long wedges.
I don’t think the slightly narrower skirt is a problem
And the final change was to add pockets.
