Pemberley Tunic & Dress

(13 customer reviews)


All Love Notions Sewing Patterns are digital downloads, you may print them at home or send to a copy shop. A physical pattern will not be mailed to you.

Inspired by the Regency era empire bodice, the Pemberley Tunic & Dress is sure to flatter most figures. The empire bodice cinches in at the most narrow point under the bust line. This emphasizes the narrowest point on most women and is great for shorter women to give the appearance of added height. Using the recommended fabrics is key in getting the most figure flattering silhouette. The Pemberley is meant for lightweight and drapey knits. It features a shirt-tail hem which makes the legs look longer and gives more vertical emphasis making you look taller and slimmer! The shirt-tail hem also minimizes hips and covers tummy trouble spots. The tunic also includes four sleeve lengths: short, 3/4, long & bishop. The tab sleeve option is a fun and sophisticated touch to dress up the top. Because it’s so important to get a well-fitted bodice on this tunic, included are two bodice options – average bust and full bust. Also included are instructions to further customize the bodice if needed. If that’s not enough value for you, there’s also a maternity add-on included! This pattern is quickly assembled with the new trimless assembly and layered printing if desired.

An A0 large format file has been included for copy shop printing as places like Staples, Office Maxx, etc. Be sure you instruct your printer to print in black and white on their cheapest paper. Sometimes these prints are called architectural prints. This file prints on two A0 sized sheets. A projector file is also included for those using that technology.

    This tunic and dress will be a staple in my wardrobe! Love the tab sleeve touch and how flowy and flattering it is. And it’s super comfy on top of that! Thanks for another great pattern.

    This is so comfortable. I love all of the options for changing it up. It is an easy sew. Looks great on any shape or size person!

    This is a lovely pattern. It was the first time I did elastic encased in a top and the instructions were very clear. I love that this top can be made to wear to work or casually and there are many options within the pattern.

    This is a great pattern. I made the maternity version in a tunic length. It’s very comfy and cute.

  5. Emily (verified owner)

    This pattern is easy to assemble, and the directions are clear and concise. I have now made two versions, and I plan on several more. The options available make this a great staple for any season. Both of mine are very flattering and I feel very confident when I am wearing them. Definitely worth the investment!

  6. Tabitha (verified owner)

    Definitely a favorite pattern of mine! Was slightly concerned in the beginning about it making my mommy belly look worse than it is but it was actually quite the opposite 🙂 I just made sure I stuck to fabric recommendations and all was good.

    I made this pattern for my Mother and she was so thrilled with the result. I love the figure flattering design. It looks great on all different types of shapes.

    This is an amazingly flattering shirt. The instructions to add a full bust adjustment were awesome and enabled me to have a gorgeous well-fitting top.

  9. Sarah (verified owner)

    I love this pattern. The included full bust option saves me a lot of effort, and it is so flattering! Instructions are clear and easy to follow.

    I have been searching high and low to purchase a ladies top with an empire waist option. Low and behold I found this pattern so that I can make my own! Thank you so much for offering this pattern. I’m excited to make several in this style.

  11. Elena (verified owner)

    I have made this top several times, and it is a favourite of mine. I found the pattern nice and easy to follow, and as with all the Love Notions patterns, the instructions are really clear and easy to follow. I love wearing my Pemberly’s with shorts and jeans. The fit and drape of the Pemberly is very flattering and comfortable to wear.

  12. Rachel (verified owner)

    As always with LN patterns the pattern is simple but well designed. I love the style and look forward to hacking it for a more wintery look 🙂

  13. Trista

    Very flattering. Love the draps of this pattern.
