Pattern Description: The Emmaline dress is a beautiful floor length maxi with a ruffled halter neckline. One, two or three bottom ruffles are included for a dreamy look.
Pattern Sizing: 2T - 10 years. I sewed sizes 6 and 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes. Even though the ruffle neck directions seem weird, I promise it turns out right Just follow her directions. I also pinned the elastic in the back and tried them on before sewing together. I wanted to make sure they fit and strongly suggest that since I had to take in more on my youngest and a little less on my oldest one.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love everything about this pattern! My girls were beyond excited about these dresses!
Fabric Used: Quilters cotton from Joann's. Lots of it too! Pattern is a fabric hog!! I ended up not having enough fabric for three ruffles on the bottom but two look just as pretty
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I sewed the dresses at night while girls were sleeping so they were too long. I ended up sewing a tuck and will let out next summer. Not a bad thing
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I have two nieces that love dresses so yes I will sew it again. If my girls insist on another one next summer then I will make more for them too I do recommend to others. Like most patterns I tend to sew, lots of ruffles which means twirl factor! Perfect beach dress!!
one last photo of them playing , silly girls Love them!!
