This is my third Sew Over It Eve dress (one and two), and probably won't be my last because I blinking love this pattern.
I was inspired to make it maxi length after seeing a gorgeous maxi version ages ago on Instagram. I just extended the length of the skirt pieces, but had to fold the side edges in a bit to fit on the fabric.
The fabric is some viscose bought last year from The Textile Centre. I ordered 3 metres, but they sent me 3.5 metres with a note to say that the extra half metre was because there was a slight flaw on the print. After much searching I found it, and it was only in one place and extended 8cm in from the edge. I love The Textile Centre!
A lot of petite folks say they can't wear maxis; I say nonsense!! I loves me a maxi dress, and this one is number 5 of my Make Nine. And if you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I've been making jeans, which is also part of my Make Nine, and they are a triumph as my sister would say! But they are for another post.
And this is possibly the shortest post I've ever written! Have a great weekend,
