During the last couple of weeks, I’ve been doing a couple of pattern testing (which I love so much and I’ve been slowly disclosing in the past few posts) and today I’m showing you the latest pattern I had the opportunity to test: the Eva Dress and Blouse (by Rosalie&me patterns).
I saw the preview of this pattern in the internet and was immediately capture by this design – sweet, simple and very classic. I really couldn’t wait to test it!
So when I was contacted for the testing, I already knew exactly which fabric to use. This blue toile has been on my stash for quite a while waiting for the right pattern. I think it was a great match …
I used a mix of trims for this top: navy rick-rack for the front and back bodice and cotton eyelet with a navy ribbon for the sleeve ruffle. I think it looks girly enough (but hopefully not too much).
This was a super simple pattern to follow (pdf pattern with color step-by-step instructions including sizes 18 months to 8 years) that comes together pretty easily with no major issues. I would totally recommend it for a beginner.
I couldn’t be happier with the result. I was quite impressed with this pattern and the way it fits my girl – and I’m pretty sure she loves it too (either that or she was in a rather “unusual” modeling mood).
Note from the pattern designer: The Eva Dress and Top pattern will be released on Black Friday, and it will be on sale for $5 with the code EVA2OFF (here). The sale price will be effective through Monday. On Tuesday it will go back to the regular price of $7.
