Tessuti's Eva dress with inverted pleats in the skirt
I've made another dress using the Eva dress bodice, this time the sleeveless bodice, with a self-designed skirt. The skirt has three inverted pleats at both the front and the back, with the larger inverted pleat at centre front and centre back. The fabric I used for this dress is a heavy weight cotton that was better suited to pleats than gathers. I bought the material at Rathdowne Fabrics but I noticed it was also available at The Cloth Shop and Clegs. I spent yesterday afternoon visiting some of Melbourne's well know fabric shops checking out their sales and coming away with some lovely additions to my fabric stash.
