The Eve Dress sewing pattern is designed for sewers with some experience of lightweight drapey fabrics. With relatively simple construction, ambitious beginners might like to make their first dress in a more stable fabric such as cotton lawn or voile.
Eve works beautifully in lightweight woven fabrics with some drape, such as rayon, viscose, crepe and georgette. Less experienced sewers could try a lightweight cotton such as lawn or voile. With minimal seams it makes the perfect dress for showing off those big bold prints.
The Eve Dress comes in UK sizes 6-30. See the chart for details on fabric requirements. The dress also requires 1.5-2m of cotton stay tape.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.

So what is a PDF pattern?
A PDF pattern is a downloadable pattern that you print yourself at home on A4 or US letter paper. Alternatively you can choose to have the copyshop files printed on large A0 paper, and posted to you at home. If you’re using the A4 or US letter options, simply download, print at home, tape together and let the sewing begin! When you print the pattern, print at 100% (you might have to uncheck the scale box). Print page 1 first, the square should measure 10cm x 10cm.
