When Eva received Anne Frank, she was wearing her only set of clothes, a 1940s style jumper, a blouse with a Peter Pan collar, and a cardigan made from very classic British wool. I had a feeling Anne would be changing out of this soon.
While Eva waited for Anne, she started sewing for her. She used the tutorials and the patterns from my Doll Dressmaking Series and really went to work. The clothes are lovely, clever and Eva's skills by the end are quite impressive. below you will find some of Eva's tips (which I LOVE).
Eva's sewing tips:
*Read all the pattern instructions before starting
*Put the iron on lower than you think is needed ( I've burned quite a few dresses myself)
*I would start with the peasant dress or the reversible dress from the doll dressmaking series
*It's a good idea to have the doll before you get started, so that if you need to take something up or down you know how much to do so.
*Keep trying, my first dresses had lots of problems, don't let it get to you.
Thank you Eva, this is so inspiring! The original story of Eva and Anne can be found here.
