The Emma Dress is a great everyday fit-and-flare knit dress. She features a form-fitting princess-seamed bodice with a lovely round neckline, a pretty pleated skirt and 3/4-length sleeves. 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 or scuba, Emma is easier to sew than you might think. The pattern is perfect for Confident Beginners and is a great one to have a go at if you’re new to knit fabrics.
