The Eva dress by Tessuti is not my usual style but I feel like my 'style' is evolving and I am exploring new options lately.
The fabric was bought from Tessuti as well and is one of their recommendations for this dress. It is called Giolica and is a linen polyamide blend and has a lovely crinkled texture. I made my dress and used the tip in Sandra's excellent review to spritz the dress with water after after sewing to restore the crinkle. The picture is after doing this. I have washed it since and the crinkle is slightly more pronounced. This makes it a lovely dress - no ironing required!
The dress has been worn to my work Xmas lunch as well as on Xmas Day and was lovely and comfy (no need to loosen the belt after eating!) I had been thinking though that if I had made it in green, it may have made a good Xmas tree costume...
Anyway a great pattern with wonderfully written instructions that makes a very easy to wear dress, perfect for an Australian summer! I still have two pair of pants not blogged about (both Tessuti patterns)... getting the photos is the road block, but life should be a little less busy now that Christmas is over so I hope to show them to you soon... Ciao!
