Violette Field Threads Emmaline Dress Pattern
Stunning dress and super easy
This dress is so adorable! When I finished it, my 3 year-old did not want to take it off. The pattern is super easy to follow, and with the included step-by-step instructions/photos, it is like having an instructor right there with you. I have only ever sewn one other garment, and my mother-in-law set up all the stitches, did the pressing and everything else for me. No special feet or attachments are necessary for this. The only problem I had was when sewing together the three layers of fabric to do the bottom ruffles. I found that by increasing the thread tension and doing the longest straight stitch possible, I was able to pull on the bottom thread to create the ruffles for that portion of the dress. My niece liked it so much that I'm making her one for her birthday.
