Hi, I’m Emily! I’m a pattern designer and digital content creator. Welcome to my blog. Here is where I write about the things I’m passionate about, like sewing, slow fashion, and living a simple and sustainable lifestyle.

The name Emily Lightly was born out of my desire to live a lighter, simpler life – lighter both in terms of my own impact on this earth, and also in terms of being less encumbered by all the possessions, stress, obligations, and responsibilities that are not truly important to me.

This blog is a way for me to share my experience and what I learn along the way to help you live a simpler, lighter, happier life as well. I hope you stick around!
