Floral Sew Over It Eve

This is actually the second Sew Over It Eve Dress I’ve made. I made one other version for my mom but this is the first time that I made one for myself. Normally I grade out at the waist and hips since I’m usually a larger size at those points but for this dress I just made a straight size 8, which worked out perfectly. I did shorten the bodice by 1″ but I did not shorten the skirt to give it more of a midi length.

I love the flutter sleeves and the high low hem on this dress. The wrap is super comfortable and I really like that it makes the dress adjustable. That meant I didn’t have to worry too much about fit on this one!

I originally wanted to make this dress to wear to a wedding in August. I even included in my make 9 back in January. I was half way through making this dress when I found out that I actually needed to wear sage green to the wedding. I’m not in the wedding party so I thought I was free to wear whatever I want but apparently as the girlfriend of a family member of the groom I was expected to wear a certain color… so it was back to the drawing board for what to wear to the wedding. I’ll do another post soon on that 🙂

I really love this fabric. It is a rayon voile and I originally got it from Blackbird fabrics but it looks like they are sold out. I’ve seen it at other fabric stores since then though so you might be able to find it. I really like floral prints but I’ve struggled to find ones that aren’t too young looking and in colors that I like. This one definitely checked all of my floral fabric boxes! I have a little bit of this fabric left over so I’m going to need to figure out what else I can make out of what I have left over!

  1. Also, I could see a Hawaiian Shirt done in that fabric really making a statement when out and about with a significant male other. (Such as your Dad)

  2. That happened to me! I sewed a green dress for a wedding, found out that as the girlfriend of a wedding party member I was expected to wear the wedding color…and I said Nah and wore the green dress. I wasn’t going to be in the photos, so I figured it was fine. Their marriage isn’t annulled so I guess it was?
    That being said you can wear this lovely dress to the rehearsal dinner and still show it off!

    • I was in wedding pictures so I decided to comply with the color but then I was the only one wearing sage green!! The women on the other side of the family were supposed to wear emerald and the other woman on my side decided to wear the dress she already had which was olive green! I love the outfit I ended up wearing too so it all worked out in the end.
