I will admit, I'm dying to sew something new. But I couldn't deny that the Eva dress is one fabulous pattern. And time was ticking away and this is not the time to try something new. It's time to go with something that I know will work and just get it done. This is a special occasion dress.
Along the way there were injuries, boo-boos, bandages, heating pads, medications and quality time with the seam ripper. But in the end, everything worked out and words can not express the amount of relief I feel.
Nothing new to say about the construction of the Eva dress. I made it with basically the same changes as the others. Oh, but the armhole seam I sewed an 1/2" seam instead of 5/8" on the others. The rest of the seams were sewn with a 5/8" seam allowance. The fabric is a silk that I found in the home decor department. It was pre-treated with a tumble through a wash cycle and a spin in the dryer. All on the delicate cycles.
