E+M Patterns Dress Pattern No.19 - Release & Sale

Here it is - the latest pattern release from E+M Patterns - Dress Pattern No.19!! Another beautifully conceived and intelligently constructed pattern from the designer Allison!

As always with E+M Patterns, the finish on the inside is as important as the looks and style on the outside of the dress - this is not a 'quick and dirty' sew! This is a work of sewing art!! All the seams are either completely enclosed or finished so there are no raw edges - I just love this attention to detail.

The pattern comes with lots of different options - Sleeveless, short, cap or flutter sleeves - the bias around the neck can tie at the back or the front where there is a cute little keyhole detail, or you can leave the ties off completely and just have the button closure at the back.

This is a looser fitting dress - so perfect for playing, running and jumping - and the waist is fitted with elastic in a casing, so is really comfy and easy to move around in. And just look at those pretty little pintucks on the front!

We went with the short sleeve version, and chose to have the ties at the back. I let Little B have free reign at the fabric shop, and she picked out this sweet colourful dickie bird fabric! I think she loves her 'birdie dress', as she calls it, all the more for having made some of the decisions!

As always the pattern is really easy to follow, with clear images to help you out with each step, and the sizing is spot on! The pattern comes in sizes 2-10 years. A new feature for E+M Patterns is the no trim pattern pages - all the quicker to assemble and get sewing!!

The pattern is available now and is on sale for $5 until Wednesday night at midnight (regular price is $8).
