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.

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.
