E+M Patterns Dress Pattern No.17 release and sale

Released today is the latest pattern from E+M Patterns - a great winter staple for the cold weather that is setting in!! I was very pleased to be able to test another one of Allisons lovely patterns!

I decided this would make a perfect little Christmas dress, and I had this lovely soft fluffy jersey fabric I thought would be perfect! It's so warm a snuggly - especially the big cowl neck. There is also the option to do a plain banded neck.

For this dress I chose to do an elastic waistband, but you could also have a shirred waist, or belt loops with a belt of your choice.

There are three different hemline options - straight, hi-lo or shirt hem - for this dress I chose to do a straight hem. You can also pick between 3/4 or full length cuffed sleeves.

Oh, and the other great thing about this dress - it has hidden in-seam pockets!! Little B does love pockets!!

For my second dress I went with a plain minty green interlock - again very soft and cosy - great for this chilly weather!

This time I chose the belted option and used some bright pink grosgrain ribbon to add some detail, and I went with the hi-lo hem - which looks so cute!

As always Allisons instructions are so clear and easy to follow, and with so many options this really is a fantastic pattern!

The regular price will be $8, but it's ON SALE for $4 (50% off - no code needed) until Thursday!!

The pattern is available on the E+M Patterns website, as well as Etsy and Craftsy
