Goooooooooooood mornin', good mo-o-or-nin'! As school around the US is in full swing, and the scent of fall is in the air, we're continuing to take a look at great patterns to transition into fall or wear to school. And today you can win 2 patterns of your choice from Izzy & Ivy!!!!!
Today we get the chance to check out the Emory Dress by Izzy & Ivy. Our girls pulled out all the stops, showing you how to easily layer this pattern for fall, and how easily it can be transitioned to a tunic. Check out Rebecca and Serena's amazing creations and read all the details about the pattern.
This is originally a dress but I modified it slightly to make it into a top that could float between a warm fall day to a cold fall night. I measured my daughter from the bottom of the bodice down to a few inches below her waist to get the dimension of the modified skirt piece. You could even make this into a tunic and it would last longer in the closet. Also a fun little side note, I made this 3t top with less than $10 worth of 'Quilt Shop Pricey Fabric'...I bet if I used fabric from my ever growing stash under my desk it would have been almost nothing.
First off, how fun is this fabric I found? Bicycle prints are all the rage now, run fast to your local quilting shop and stock up because they're becoming harder to find! The fabulous bike print is 'Bon Voyage Noir', the pink print is 'Les Points Rose', and the blue floral print is 'Joie De Vivre Beryl'; all fabrics are from Frances Newcombe's Cherie line.
I love all the precious little details this pattern has, the tie pockets, the button back, the fold over hem at the bottom, and even the sweet little gathered arms. Everything about this dress is pretty straightforward but all the simple details make this seem so much more custom. My daughter is a sucker for a pocket and she couldn't keep her hands out of them.

I am pretty happy with the overall fit of the top, the length is spot on and the chest width fits great too. My daughter is in-between a 2t and 3t as of lately so I've been sewing a 3t and they are fitting great with RTW.
