Self-Care Sewing Kit: Eve Dress
Eve is a versatile wrap dress with endless potential. With two stunning variations creating completely different looks, there’s so much fun to be had with this pattern!
Whether you go boho romantic for summer garden parties or sleek and elegant for everyday, the Eve Dress will keep you dressed up in style. Floaty, feminine and romantic, variation 1 makes the ultimate summer wedding outfit. It dreamily harks back to the 70s with its dipped hem, on-trend statement sleeve and gently relaxed fit. This variation will have you dancing around the garden barefoot in no time.
Understated and sleek, variation 2 features a more contemporary silhouette, with narrow elbow-length sleeves and a level knee-length hem. Elegant and wearable year-round, it’s a great wardrobe staple; a sure-fire go-to for Friday evening post-work drinks. Both dresses feature a pretty gathered yoke, wrap over front and a long tie closure.
In this box, you will receive a paper pattern, fabric of your choice, and all the notions to match your fabric. And don't forget, you can use the pattern over and over again!

- Ochre Seraphine Crocus Print Viscose Twill - We love the viscose from Atelier Brunette more than we can say! The cool silky hand has to be touched to be believed. And the semi-fluid drape hangs so beautifully, you'll want to use the fabric for just about everything. Printed with deep red, light pink, and dark blue crocus flowers, this fabric nods to spring and summer with a bold and colorful gesture. A gorgeous print you'll love to show off!
- Cream and Black Pin Dot Crepe - This dreamy fabric is thin yet mostly opaque, a feat for a light-colored crepe, and the fluid drape is silky and divine. The cream color is the perfect for all occasions and the silky hand, which skims over your skin, is made for the summer heat. This will be your new favorite summer dress!
