The Emma Sewing Pattern book is a complete pattern and tutorial for a ladies' high-necked, sleeveless dress and blouse in Ladies sizes XXS to 5XL. Suitable for both woven and knit/stretch fabrics, it's a fantastic pattern for beginners and more advanced alike! This gorgeous pattern offers a fitted neckband with an extremely loose, flared top or dress. Five length options (top, tunic, knee, tea, and maxi) plus an optional sash to cinch in the waist and keyhole detailing at the back, finish off this supremely feminine garment. Full fabric requirements are included inside this book. Depending on size, for the Top version you'll need approximately 2 yards or less. The Tunic version requires 2-3 yards, the Knee length 2.75-4 yards, and the Tea length version 4-5.5 yards depending on size. The Maxi length is stunningly enormous and will use 5-7 yards depending on size. You will also need 2x small buttons or snaps for the back of the neck fastening, a small piece of fusible interfacing for the collar, optional bias tape and thread to match. Full-sized pattern pieces are also included in this book; photocopy the pages or simply cut them out of the book, then tile as per the instructions to assemble the complete pattern. Full beginner-friendly instructions are included, along with a one page quick-glance cheat sheet guide for more advanced sewistas.

A whole wardrobe in a book. Imagine a pattern. A pattern for a simple skirt. Let’s call it “The Skirt.” Now, imagine that this pattern is magic—it not only yields one stylish skirt, but in fact can be used to make six stylish skirts. By following different markers on the pattern, “The Skirt” can be: 1) an A-line skirt; 2) a maxi skirt; 3) a flirty pleated hem skirt; 4) a smart-looking pencil-wrap skirt; 5) a flared bias skirt; 6) a ruffled mini. But wait, there’s more! Following each look are six fabric recommendations, some of them easily repurposed. So now, not only does each pattern turn into six patterns, but each of the six patterns can turn into six different garments. With six magic patterns in the book, the end result is 216 original designs! The skill level is basic, and there’s a complete sewing primer included, with recommendations for basic tools, step-by-step instruction, a guide to fabrics, and a sizing reference chart. Express your fashion sense, look great, be creative—and save money. Now that’s magic.
