The Emmaline

If you like to sew for little girls, chances are you’ve heard of the Emmaline.  If you haven’t heard about it, well, I am here to tell you about this gorgeous dress!

It’s a brand new pattern out by Violette Field Threads and it’s been spreading across Pinterest like wildfire!  And for good reason!

The Emmaline is a maxi dress for little girls. And it has tons of ruffles!

This is the first pattern I have made by Violette Field Threads.  The pattern was really well written with clear instructions and lots of pictures to help you through.

The pattern offers a choice of using store-bought bias tape, or making your own.  I’ve always been too scared to make my own, but with the simple instructions and pictures to guide me through, I successfully made my own bias tape for the first time!

The Emmaline features a ruffled neckline, a ruffled hem (with the option of 1 – 3 ruffles) and a sweet halter top. 

This pattern would be suitable for the advanced (or confident) beginner and beyond.

Oh… and it has great twirl factor!

    What were the dimensions of the piece of fabric you used to make the bias tape. It says a 1/4yd piece but that does not create a square for me in order to create the triangle shown. HELP!!!
