Waves & Wild Children's Emi Top/Dress - PDF sewing pattern


The Emi T-Shirt and Dress is a wonderfully versatile pattern. There are options for a t-shirt, peplum t-shirt or dress with a circle skirt. Choose from long or short sleeves with cuffs, or an all-in-one sleeve. The dress can have in-seam pockets.

Light/medium weight knit fabrics such as cotton/Lycra jersey are ideal for this pattern

The Emi T-Shirt and Dress pattern goes from prem./small newborn right up to age 12. It is suitable for enthusiastic beginners.

The Emi T-Shirt and Dress is the sister pattern to the Eclipse so the sleeves and skirt can be mix-and-matched and used with each other. As a result you can create a huge number of different designs from just two patterns. Use the free Amber or Lunar patterns with the Emi skirt to create even more options!

An overlocker/serger will create the neatest finish but importantly, a sewing machine is all you need for all options. It is suitable for advanced beginners. There is a full YouTube video tutorial for the t-shirt option.
