|The Perfect Picnic Dress in Cherry Printed White Cream|
But that doesn't mean they aren't worth what emmy charges for them, they are absolutely worth every penny if you have the money to spend. A large majority of the items are made of a heavy pique fabric (like June's dress), have concealed in-seam pockets, vertical panels that will make your waist appear slimmer and your stomach appear flatter, full swing skirts with a sewn-on piece with tone in tone stitching to give stability and flare, concealed zippers and a belt covered in the same fabric. The pieces are so impressively well thought out.
Strawberry Summernight Dress in Yellow Pique in a size 38 (US 6/UK10). I first saw this dress on when the red version was on Modcloth (it was called the Musical Cherie Dress but is no longer in stock). I was unsure of my size at the time (the conversion chart was a bit confusing) so I didn't buy it, and was bummed at how quickly it disappeared because I was never able to find the brand. I was so excited when I stumbled across it again on Polyvore and discovered the brand was emmy. Upon ordering and receiving my dress, I could've gone with the 36 (I was afraid of it not fitting my bust) but I absolutely love the fit regardless. But, for ladies a bit confused by the size chart, don't size up, the dresses prove to be very true to size, I think the most beneficial thing would be to order based on your measurements.
The dress is made of a heavy pique fabric, I actually don't own anything else made of this fabric and I love how sturdy and versatile it is. Did you ever have a grandmother buy or sew you ornate dresses when you were younger to wear to Sunday School (maybe this is a southern thing)? It reminds me of that. The dress has hidden in seam pockets, a boat-neck neckline and a full gathered skirt, but my favorite feature of this dress (this is added proof of their attention to detail), a clever detail at the shoulders to fasten your bra straps on the inside so that your bra doesn’t show

One cute feature is that the 'straps' of the dress are actually little bows that you tie! There are so many positive qualities about this dress that it's hard to pin point my favorite quality. I love the hidden pockets, lower back, darts in the front and back and a long zipper so I don't struggle to take the dress on and off. Overall, I'd say the main thing that I love about this dress (and all of the dresses from emmydesign that I've worn) is the amazing quality. The attention to detail is mind-blowing and this dress is an art of work. This is now my go-to Summer dress, and I can't wait to wear it adventuring at the river!
