Last year I have sewn the Marie by pattydoo and added the sleeves of the Chloe, as I do not like sleeveless dresses on myself. That did work out though I was not perfectly satisfied with the sleeves. The are standing a little bit too high. Therefore I bought the new pattydoo pattern Eliza as soon as it came out last November, it is a Marie with sleeves.
Quickly I had prepared the pattern, but I good not decide on the fabric. Browsing through my fabrics I finally found the one I had bought two years ago on a fabric market for a dress for our Africa journey that year.
Well, that I did not manage to sew the dress for that holiday did not really matter. As we travelled during the European summer it was winter in South-Africa and therefore to cold to wear a summer dress. After last years hot sommer I hope for another one. That’s why I took this one to sew my first Eliza. At the moment it is still cold outside therefore I only present a doll’s picture. As soon as it is warm enough for me to wear it I will show a picture of her on me.
I like Eliza very much and the sleeves are much better than on my pattern combination. As I have two other fabrics that would be gorgous dresses I surely will sew more Elizas.
