Dress Pattern No. 15 by E+M Designs

Pin It
 Welcome to the next stop on this fun blog hop, show casing this wonderful dress pattern by E+M Designs!  I'm also sharing another look for my younger daughter over at Daisy Chain Creations, if you want to get another look at the dress.
Can I just say, we love this dress around our house!  Having a daughter who is middle school means she is a little pickier about what she wears to said middle school and this dress has passed the test.  The other great thing she has told me is that it will be good to layer in the colder months and then wear with boots....I like her style and thinking.
It is a simple knit dress with a couple different variations to hem length/design.  As you can see, it has shirring at the waist (can you believe I've never done that before...even old dogs learn new tricks:)  and some fun ruched shoulder ties.
I already have requests for more of these and plans to play around with the length for some different looks.  This dress goes up to a size not the most inclusive for a tween pattern, but it certainly could be lengthened to accommodate taller tweens.  While there are many possibilities with this dress, I think the nicest thing about it is it's really comes together in just a couple of hours. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and there isn't much needed in the way of notions or material. There are just 2 main pattern pieces and the ties and casing piece for the ties. That's it!
So if you want a simple and easy to assemble dress that your daughter will love, you should go check out the Dress Pattern No. 15 by E+M Patterns! Right now you can use a discount code TOUR15 to get the pattern for $5.

  4. this doesn't have to do with the post, but I'm wondering if we can discuss skinny jeans for the tween. Has any one tried these in tween sizes: or anything else successfully. this would make my tween happy. although I usually just buy them~!
