The Emma Dress

I made something yesterday.
My friend Jess, at craftiness is not optional, did a sew-along for this super cute Emma Dress last week. I wasn't feeling well, and had to put it off until yesterday.  Jess has the tutorial split up into 3 days, but I was able to finish it up in a couple of hours. Lucky for me, our daughters wear the same size, so I was able to print her pattern and save myself some work.  

I love the off-center bodice.

 Not to mention the collar and ric-rac.

I was worried it was a little too yellow, but it really brings a ray of sunshine to a cold January day. 

Best of all she loves it.

I was at a meeting yesterday and left all the fabric and supplies laying around the dinning room table. When I came home, my husband said my girls were talking about how much they loved the fabric and how much they love it when mom sews for them, and soon there was a fight over who was getting a new dress. Ha, I love it. I think I just go the motivation to make something for valentines.

This dress looks amazing! I love the fabric patterns and the yellow-gray combination. The collar and the strip at the bottom creates kind of a frame. Beautiful and elegant too!
