Emma's Dress Pattern Review

I tested another beautiful dress for my big girl, Emma's Dress from Lily Bird Studio.

Abby loves the paper-bag styled waist and removable sash.  The sizing on the bodice was perfect and she didn't want to take this dress off!  Emma's Dress is sized for 2-10 years.  Abby normally wears a 9/10 and the 10 years was a great fit.  The final pattern was lengthened to the dress hits at the knee, not a mini like my pictures.  She just wears little shorts underneath so she can still play on the monkey bars :) 
First button holes with my NEW vintage Pfaff!
New pattern is 5" longer in size 10 to be knee length.
As always, Cecilia's instructions and photos in this PDF pattern are excellent, so even beginners can sew with confidence.  Be watching for a GIVEAWAY from Lily Bird Studios coming soon!

See more photos of Emma's Dress over at Hopeful Threads.

I have two more dresses to test this week, so come back soon to enter the GIVEAWAY and see some more cute dresses!
