Fresh Press Patterns
Sewing Skill: Confident Beginner
Meet the Evi dress. Trimmed with center front buttons. Tailored for a slim fit and belted for added definition. The front hem upside down "V" cut out allows for easy movement and an eye catching detail. Make it in denim for a casual everyday dress or a wool/wool crepe to add a little more sophistication. The Evi will also work well in a thicker cotton twill or linen. The dress is unlined. You'll reach for this dress year round.
Model is 5'8 and is wearing size 8.
FABRIC SUGGESTIONS: This dress has both bust and bodice darts so go with a fabric that will mold to your curves. Choose wovens, or heavy knits like Pointe with no more than 2% stretch. A spongey denim with stretch or even scuba knits. If you go with a stretchier knit you may need to size down. Wools and wool crepes will mold beautifully. Cottons and linens will work nicely too.
