Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step by step instructions with illustrations.




The instructions were clear and the sewalong was helpful - especially for the small bust adjustment I had to do! My difficulty was that I had quite a lot of excess fabric at the top of the centre back seam but no excess at the bottom of the centre back seam - the sew along didn't deal with this alteration. Also the pdf pattern is pretty time-consuming to assemble but it was worth it in the end!



Overall, I’m really happy with how it fits. I only made one minor adjustment and its comfortable to wear, and is already getting worn a lot.
The neckline is just a little too wide and gapes a bit though, both at the front and back, so I will try to make some adjustments to fix that.


Love this pattern!!


A well planned and easy to assemble pattern.


I've made several Emerys and love them!


Nothing but praise for Emery!



It is such a great and well drafted pattern. The fit is perfect!
