Is anyone else out there totally in love with the Etta sewing pattern?! Lexy here (both behind the keys and on your screens!) and it's my pleasure to show you the Etta dress that Vanesssa made when she explained how to line it. It's just too gorgeous not to share!

Ness used one of our Etta sewing kits to make this stunner. The material is a gorgeous quality sateen, which is super easy to sew, and the slight stretch to it means that it hugs your curves to flatter, whilst allowing movement for comfort - the best of both worlds!

This version includes the statement collar and faux pockets (which are surprisingly easy to make). We opted for cap sleeves for this Etta, which are perfect for summer sunshine. The pattern also comes with the option of très chic three-quarter-length sleeves.

If this all sounds a bit complicated but you'd like to make yourself an Etta dress, check out our online video workshop, where you'll be guided through the whole process.

I can absolutely envisage wearing this to a wedding, party, or if I want to feel a bit swish in the studio! It also feels super fancy what with the silky lining, and the material has a slight sheen to it, making it all the more glamorous (and we do love a bit of glamour...).
