More Emery Dresses!


It is so satisfying to see the many Emery Dresses pop up on the internet! I already shared a whole bunch during the Emery Dress Sew-Along Parade, but since then I have found many more! If you've finished one and have photos of it, let me know! I'd love to see them!

It's also nice to see them featured on Kollabora and/or in the Christine Haynes Patterns Flickr pool, so if you're on either of those platforms, post your beautiful dresses! Okay, on with the show!

First up is the gorgeous version that my pal Devon (whom you might know of as Miss Make) made for the release of the latest London Calling collection from Robert Kaufman (pictured above and below). Elizabeth who works for Kaufman modeled the dress and Nichole (who also works for Kaufman) shot the lovely photos, at none other than Disneyland! Could you die at how adorable these are? I die.


In a completely different photo shoot location, the lovely Erin of Miss Crayola Creepy was recently in my favorite place and shot photos of her modeling her Emery Dress on the streets of Paris. Again, I die.  (Erin's dress was in the last post, but only on her dress form. Clearly these are worth a repeat!)


Fellow designer Pauline Alice made up an Emery to wear to a New Year's Eve party, and it is pretty much party perfection. I am a sucker for vintage-looking metallic brocade and think her version is divine!


Tasha from By Gum By Golly declared her Emery the best fitting dress she owns! Which given her handmade wardrobe, is a HUGE compliment! Her dress is vintage floral perfection.


Bay area blogger C Sews made her Emery with a ton of customization: piping in the waist seam, hand embroidery on the collar, and lace on the hem. Simply gorgeous! She wrote many posts on the process if you are interested in checking them out!


I realized that I didn't post these two Emery Dresses from my Quilt Market post in the Emery Parade last time, and thought they deserved a mention. On the left is me and the kind Lizzy House, both in Emery Dresses. Lizzy's version is made from her adorable Cat Nap collection with Andover Fabrics. On the right is another Emery that Devon made for Robert Kaufman, this time from Carolyn Friedlander's recent Botanics collection. 


And lastly, but hardly least, as the hardest working woman in the Emery factory, Kathy has two new Emery Dresses. The first one was made in my class at Sew L.A., which you saw in our group shot. And below that is her latest Emery, made with a fitted skirt and an altered sleeve. She's launched The 100 Ways of Emery project on her blog where she uses the pattern as a jumping point for a closet full of dresses. Thanks Kathy!



Thanks to everyone for using my pattern and for looking so fabulous!
