DRESS FOR EVA #1

A few posts ago I mentioned that my sister (Eva) had commissoned some dresses from me.  After a quick brainstorming session yesterday, she decided to go with the 'Coffee Date Dress' pattern available for free download from Burdastyle for dress # 1.

I'm making a sample dress at the moment, just to make sure the pattern works properly before I cut Eva's fabric.  It's going to have a black cotton upper & a red floral skirt.  I'm going to put a black ruffle on it & possibly a waistband as I've read from some of the reviews that the bodice is a little on the short side.... but we'll see. 
Will hopefully have the sample one run up by tomorrow evening so will post on that... I'm using a red & white stripe fabric so if it turns out nice I might have it for sale :D

Love Lyndi xx
