You’ll remember I imposed a buying patterns ban upon myself, just a few days ago. In that time, Emery Dresses have been popping up all over the sewing blogosphere.
Just look at this delicious nautical number from Adey at the Sew Convert:
Or this Jackie-Kennedy-channelling version from Lauren at Rosie Wednesday (in my head that blog name always seems to come out as Ruby Tuesday!):

How can you do this to me, Fate? No buying new patterns until March at the earliest, and then this happens!
Thankfully there is a possible solution. My rule is no *buying* of patterns. But winning a giveaway would be perfectly fine. So it’s fantastic that both Lauren and Shanni are hosting giveaways for the Emery Pattern.

Go here, for Shanni’s giveaway: http://shanniloves.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/completed-emery-dress-by-christine.html
And if all else fails, this is definitely on my Pattern Buying List for when my six months is up.
