Five models to create your own evening dress

We’re officially entering the holiday season, and if you’re short on clothes and don’t want to shop for fast fashion, Sew Over It has the solution.

The UK’s leading tailoring community shared five designs with Prima, so you can join the millions of others in the UK who love to make their own clothes.

Founder Lisa Comfort, who launched the brand in 2011, said, “I wanted to convey my passion for sewing through Sew Over It and encourage more people around the world to choose needle and thread.

We’re big fans of sewing here in the Prima office because it’s fun and durable. Creating your own capsule wardrobe of timeless classics that you will wear over and over again is so rewarding, and by creating bespoke pieces you can be sure to get the best fit.

Why not try doing the following over the next few weeks:

First motif: the Georgie dress

This model is a long-sleeved knit dress that features a flattering wrap-around bodice with the choice of a hoop skirt (ideal for thicker knits) or a ruched skirt (ideal for more jersey fabrics. light).

Second motif: the Betty dress

Super flattering for any figure, this dress pinches you at the waist and flares into a circular skirt. Get Betty ready for a winter party by getting the add-on pack which includes ¾ sleeves and two neckline options.

Third motif: the Grace dress

Grace is a fabulous evening gown that has an optional waist tie that can be tied in a bow at the front or back. You can do it sleeveless or with cap sleeves, and the model includes pockets!

Pattern four: bow tie blouse

If you prefer separate pieces, this top can be crafted in silk or sheer fabric to elevate that classic blouse to a party outfit. Wear it loose over tailored pants for a casual look, or tuck it into a pencil skirt for the office.
