Emily Dress

I find myself always looking to upcoming trends when I'm sewing.  I like to be on the cusp of what is {hot}.  The difficulty comes when I want not only high style but a vintage feel too!  The highly anticipated Emily dress is the perfect pattern that incorporates both!

Emily is a gorgeous Empire waist maxi dress with a Jane Austen feel that seamlessly blends the old with the new.

Available in sizes 2-10, Emily gives you tons of options for so many different looks, you will never make the same dress twice.

Emily boasts not only 1 or 2 skirt options, but 4!!  Yes, you heard that right!  Start with the simple straight skirt, and you have a lovely everyday look that is the perfect summer maxi dress.

Want something with a little more pizzazz?  Try the layered skirt option.  This skirt has one longer skirt layered with a shorter skirt on top.  So pretty and feminine.  This is the perfect opportunity to play around with fabrics.  Keep both skirts the same or change up the fabrics!  Let your creativity shine!

Like the layered skirt but looking for something a bit more dramatic?  Then the layered tulle skirt is the one for you!  This is the perfect skirt for that flowy dreamy look we all desire.  Perfect for when you are yearning for that gorgeous romantic look!

And last but not least, why not try your hand at the gathered ruffled skirt.  This look screams bohemian chic and features a long skirt with a bottom ruffle.  So pretty!

And while we are talking about options, we cant forget sleeves.  Emily can be made with cap sleeves for a sweet look that is very Jane Austen-esque!  

Sleeveless Emily

Leave off the sleeves for an entirely different, but just as charming look!  Add in some trim, like a few of our testers did, and you've really created something special.  Sleeves or sleeveless, you really can't go wrong with either version!

And we can't forget that amazing neck ruffle!  It's the perfect subtle detail that sends this pattern over the top!  Big enough to make a huge impact, but small enough to not overwhelm the design.  It's the perfect design element that really makes this dress stand out.
