E+M No. 19 Dress

Why, hello there! Remember when  I was blogging about my sewing creations on a regular basis? I went on a short little hiatus from sewing due to the fact that we moved to WYOMING!! With all that goes into moving across state lines (with three small children), there was no way I could justify spending my time at the sewing machine. It was a sad time for me, in a lot of ways. But the craziness of the move is now over, and I have been super busy sewing up a pre-school wardrobe for my little Avery. So stay tuned, those blog posts are coming soon.

About a week before we got the news about our move to Wyoming, I was honored to be a tester for E+M's No. 19 dress. I was assigned to do the size 2 with the short sleeve option. It can also be made sleeveless, cap sleeves, or a flutter sleeve.

Picking fabric is always what takes me the longest. I finally settled on a rust rayon fabric I had in my stash. I love how flowy rayon is - I think it was perfect for this pattern.

I love the way the elastic casing was designed in this dress. It makes it so the top of the dress drapes so nicely. And those pleats! I love little details like that.
Definitely a keeper of a pattern. So glad I was able to be a part of the testing process.


  1. You moved to Wyoming?! Can't wait to hear about your many adventures! And to see more of your amazing creations, of course!

  2. Heidi is so darling! She looks like a cut-out from the early 1900's except in vivid color. This dress is so charming on your sweet little girl.
