Belle Inspired Emery

 One fact about me is that Belle from Beauty and the Beast is my home girl. My soul sister. My spirit animal! Whatever you want to call it. She has been from 1992, that's how far back we go. We both have brunette hair, we both love books, we both want more than this provincial life, and we both fell in love with Beasts (ha ha, I kid, I kid! About the last similarity anyways... I love you Matt!).

I have been anxiously awaiting the release of the live action Beauty and the Beast for years and I am so excited that it is here! I had to make a dress to go with it.

Will you accept this rose?


 I wanted a dress that could double as an Easter dress, so I found some perfect yellow eyelet fabric. I have been meaning to have an excuse to make a gorgeous Emery dress from Christine Haynes patterns and this seemed like a perfect one! It really was such an easy pattern to follow with great lines.

I think I kind of do look like Belle!

What was Disney thinking hiring a famous Hollywood actress to portray Belle in their upcoming movie! They should've picked me! I killed in my fourth grade production of Rumplestiltskin!

I will be linking up to Akram's and Judith's Easter Dress Sewalong (even though I am a tad early!) and Allie's Social Sew!


  1. This is my new favorite thing you've ever sewn!!! This looks amazing on you--tres belle! :) The yellow, the eyelet, the fit, the little sleeves and bow... I love Emory on you! Plus, you look super confident in this photoshoot, so I know you love it too :)

    1. Well thank you so much! It's a great pattern

  2. I love it! What a perfect dress for Spring! And what is not to love about a Disney-inspired dress of course ;)

  3. Thank you so much! Yes, Disney is so much fun

  4. This is a great interpretation of Belle and it fits your vintage aesthetic well! I love the yellow. It's so sunny, and it suits you beautifully!
