The Emery Dress is a classic vintage-inspired dress that fits every body type and nearly every situation perfectly.
There are two views, and both versions have a fitted bodice that is shaped with bust darts, waist darts in the front and the back, and darts at the back of the neck. The gathered skirt on both versions is a full a-line skirt that hits around the knee, and features in-seam pockets that are sewn into the waist so they aren't flopping around under your skirt. Both versions have a fully lined bodice, invisible zipper up the center back seam, and a fat 2" hand sewn hem.
View A has short set-in sleeves and a flat 1960's style bow at the center waist. View B has 3/4 length set-in sleeves and a vintage-inspired flat pointed collar.
The Emery Dress is sized from 0–18 (US sizing) and all sizes are included in one envelope with an instruction booklet and printed tissue paper pattern.
This pattern's difficulty is rated at "three spools" which is perfect for an intermediate sewer!
