Marimekko Eva Dress U30-7202 (1932 slip turned sundress)
In an earlier post, I discussed Eva Dress U30-7202, a 1932 slip pattern that I've been using to make sundresses. This is the first sundress that I made from it.
The fabric is a mid-weight cotton print by Marimekko, and I bought it on one of my trips to Copenhagen. I loved the fabric at that store, but it was quite expensive so I only ended up with a yard and a half or two yards. I chose this pattern because it requires very little fabric, and because it wouldn't disrupt the large circles.
I lined it with some stretch silk crepe de chine, which was just awful. The fabric feels gross, and it tends to stretch itself out as I wear the dress and hang below the hem of the dress. I used it because it was what I had at the time, but...never again.
In any case, just like the other example I've posted, I've really enjoyed wearing this dress!
