Every single day our eldest asks whether she can wear a long dress today. When she goes to school usually the answer is not to school. When she is done with school she asks again if she can put on a long dress (she has 4 long dresses at the moment), the answer usually is yes. So basically our girl wears long dresses as much as possible. You can imagine that this dress is a huge hit with her. Especially since the previous long dresses I sewed her are not until the ground anymore.The Emmaline maxi, dress and top has several options. You can sew it sleeveless, with short sleeves or with long sleeves. The other options are a top option, a dress option and a maxi dress option. It comes in sizes 6M - 12 for girls and 0 - 30 for ladies. It is on sale until April 20 for $6 (girls), $7 (ladies) or $12 (bundle).
I sewed the maxi dress with long sleeves and our girl loves it, she basically lives in it when she is at home. The fit is perfect as always with BSD patterns and the dress twirls!
This dress is an easy sew, the only thing that lengthened the sewing process was adding clear elastic to the waist of the dress. By cutting the fabric mirrored for the skirt pieces it gives a nice effect, which I love.
Fabric: I bought the fabric for the bottom of the skirt at Cares Stoffen
