Emma Dress

Sew Over It

The Emma Dress is your perfect everyday fit and flare knit dress. Comfy yet flattering, it features a form-fitting princess-seamed bodice with lovely round neckline, and a pretty pleated skirt. The set-in sleeves are a classic 3/4-length and the dress closes with an invisible zip in the centre back seam. (But a lot of customers have told us if your fabric has enough stretch and recovery, the zip can easily be omitted!)
Designed to be sewn in a stable, heavier-weight knit such as ponte di Roma, Emma is easier to sew than it sounds, and makes a great dress to have a go at if you’re new to knits.

Sewing Level;
The Emma Dress is an advanced beginner to intermediate level sewing pattern. We recommend you have experience of inserting an invisible zip, but otherwise the construction is not too tricky.
Fancy some extra help?
The Emma Dress pattern, along with the Alice Top, is also available as part of our Intro to Sewing with Knit Fabrics online class on Stitch School, which comes with both video tutorials as well as written instructions.
Fabric Suggestions;
For Emma we recommend medium weight knit fabrics, such as ponte di Roma, scuba and heavier jerseys. To find the perfect fabric, have a look at our specially curated suggestions.
Fabric Requirements;
Sizing; The Emma Dress sewing pattern is sized between UK sizes 8-20. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on your measurements.
