As you well know I am really enjoying making the Love Sewing magazine free patterns (The Ruby and The Skater Dresses). So when They included an Eliza M pattern for a wiggle dress called The Eva, I was very tempted.
Lisa from White Tree Fbarics asked what I would like for my next sewing post and decided on a ponte roma and she very kindly sent me some black and teal. As a blogger for White Tree Fabrics I get the fabric provided by them. The fabric feels beautiful and was great to sew. It has a heaviness about it which I always felt was lacking with stretch fabric I have used before………it comes down to cost once more!
I had planned to make one of the dresses from my Little Black Dress book.


It was a hard decision to choose but decided on the Eva wiggle! This was in the Love Sewing Magazine.

I decided not to use the facings or a zip, so I sewed the back seam up and cut myself some bias from my spare fabric, to edge the neck and the armholes. I used a flash of fuchsia bias for the hem.




I was quite brave with my fitting and just went for it as I knew it had to fit like a glove!
The stylist (aged 15yrs!) was very creative with my hair today so I got a beautiful style!
