Catching Up! Sew Over It Eve Dress

Untitled

Another catch up blog post for a garment I made a few months ago!  I’m having to make do with garment photos as they are as I haven’t had the time to take any photos with me wearing the garments!  Ooops!

One of the dresses in my #2018MakeNine plans was the Sew Over It Eve dress.  I chose this dress to make as it looks quite flattering and has a wrap bodice that would possibly work easily with nursing Rosie.  For the bodice/ sleeves I used the pattern for version 1 and used the straight skirt pattern from version 2. I had a nice light cotton in my stash, which I believe was from Joanns…probably from the clearance section too.  It’s a great breathable fabric for the hot weather we have over here.

Sew Over It Blossom Dress

The Sew Over It Blossom pattern was gifted to me recently by Camilla and I knew that I wanted to include it in my #2018MakeNine plans.

The first step in production was to get the pattern and instructions printed off as this is a PDF pattern.  I always prefer to have a paper copy of instructions to flick through as I’m sewing.  When printing the actual pattern though, I came across my first problem.  I had downloaded the file for US size letter paper.  Paper in the US isn’t A4 like in the UK…crazy!  Anyway, I could not get the test square to print the size it needed to be.  It was either at least 0.5 cm over or 1cm under, and I tried at least 8 different printing options.  I ended up just going for the setting that was the closest measurement but it was a little bigger than it needed to be.
