Rebecca Page - Emma Dress Pattern Cover Sew

Another cover sew for the books!!  

I'm not going to lie, I was a bit intimidated by this dress.  Reading how long it has taken people to make dresses like this.....the multiple layers....the gathering....ugh.

But Rebecca Page's team caught me on a good day and I was up for the challenge!  I chose this bright peachy color, because it looks best on my skin.  I figured if I was going to have this much fabric on me, it needed to at least look good on my skin tone!

Honestly, the dress took time, but it didn't take up a lot of my patience. I'd make this again with a few modifications to the bodice, but overall, I was pleased.  I love the volume of the skirt and how nicely it flowed when I walked.  Which is why I chose a peachskin fabric for this dress.  I love how peachskin feels against my skin.  It has enough weight to create a beautiful drape but it's light enough to let the wind be your friend.
