    The Emmeline is just a stunning everyday gathered dress! The waist gathers along with the lower bust darts make this such a flattering shape. As always, Jessica has everything included to get the perfect fit including a step-by-step FBA process that makes the world of a difference for me.

    This is a stunning dress, so easy to make, and with all the grading tutorials added with the pattern is a doddle to make up. I have had so many compliments on it, and I have one heck of a tum!

    I absolutly love my Emmeline. It is my perfect dress. The construction was easy and the finished dress is a dream.
    It was great that the pattern comes as a printable for copy shops.

    I will make anlot more of these with all the options given in the pattern.

    Great first project for me, beyond a t-shirt. The detailed instructions really helped. Looks and feels great. Get a ton of compliments.

    This was the very first garment I ever sewed, the very first pattern I ever printed and tried to use. And it rocked my world. I made 20 different versions of this dress! Different sleeves, hi-low skirts, different lengths, using two colors, making the skirt tiered. Literally, this pattern is so versatile. Even as a very beginner, I had no problems following the directions, and could not recommend this pattern more!
