An Emery in Paris
Miss Crayola Creepy 12:00 AM Completed projectChristine Haynes over the past year or so. I have realized the following to be true:
- Christine is one of the nicest people I have ever met. If for some weird reason someone out there disagrees with me then I automatically don't like you.
- She is extremely knowledgable about sewing and talented at designing patterns.
- Paris is Christine's home away from home.
Emery dress, it was right before my trip to Paris. I knew that I needed photos of my finished dress in Christine's favorite place on earth.
Hotel Castex the sun was setting and I had no idea where to even find a beautiful garden haha. The photos ended up being taken in front of our hotel, but I hoped Christine would appreciate the effort ;)
This fun yellow and black fabric is from the Los Angeles Mood store. It's a little sheer around the skirt part (no issues with the bodice, as it is lined), so I will need to wear a slip or leggings which I am fine with. In Paris I wore fleece lined leggings and was perfectly warm.
Believe the hype about the Emery pattern. There's a reason that everyone is sewing it and making multiple versions. The design is great (Tasha's fit perfectly without adjustments!), everyone loves how the pockets are attached, and the directions are crystal clear. It's marked "intermediate," but I think that a beginner could sew it easily, especially if they are referencing the sew-along.
Emery has seriously thrown a wrench in my sewing plans. I can't stop thinking about all the versions I want to make and View A is probably going to be taking cut-sies and jumping up on my sewing queue, so I can get another version on my body ASAP. Thanks for designing my new favorite dress pattern, Christine!
