I’m pretty sure most of the internet knows about the Emery Dress by now, right? It’s Christine Hayne’s latest pattern release and it’s such a lovely design that really lets you get creative with finishing touches and construction techniques.

Oh, and you know it has pockets right? I think pockets will forever be the thing that seals the deal with seamstresses all over the world.

I constructed my bodice a bit differently than Christine instructs as I was using a standard vintage zip and not an invisible one. I also made my bow belt instead of using the attached bow pattern because I thought the dress would be a little more versatile sans bow.

As always, you can find more photos and construction details on my blog as well!

Never would have considered this pattern from the photos on the shops site, but your beautiful version has me thinking about it. Well done!

Completely in love with how the lining shows at the top. Great job!
