Introducing sleeves for the Cashmerette Upton Dress!

You asked… so we made it happen. Ever since we launched the Cashmerette Upton Dress, we’ve had a lot of questions about adding sleeves, so today I’m pleased to announce the Cashmerette Upton Dress Sleeves Expansion pack. There are three styles of sleeve included (cap, tie and flutter), and they all work well with the existing sleeveless armscye without re-drafting!

Cashmerette Upton Dress Sleeves

There are three ways to buy the Upton Dress Sleeve Expansion pack, which includes all the sleeve types in all sizes:

  • Already have the Upton Dress, and just want the sleeves? Get yours here.
  • Want to buy both the Upton Dress and the sleeves?
    • If you want a printed Upton Dress, and the sleeve PDF download, click here.

Let’s take a closer look at the sleeves! Our first Upton Dress sleeve is a totally classic cap style which gives a really lovely silhouette and covers up your shoulders. And, it works for the Springfield Top too.

For this sample, we used a gorgeous chambray – and it’s available as a kit, including the sleeves. If you want to make this exact dress, you can get your kit here – and it’s 25% off this week (no coupon needed).

The next Upton Dress Sleeve is a fun tie-sleeve that’s a nod to the cold shoulder trend but with a bit more coverage. The sleeve is fully lined, so you can either use a contrast lining and get a peek of it at the ties, or you can use the same fabric for a sleek look.

SOLD OUT This dress is also available as a kit! We have very limited quantities of this one, so snap yours up at 25% off if you’re interested.

And the final Upton Dress Sleeve is a flutter! This is a full sleeve which is fantastic in drapey fabrics like silk, rayon or chiffon. It’s also easy to shorten or lengthen if you want a really dramatic sleeve look!

And, another kit 🙂 Get your pink and blue rayon Upton Dress kit here (again, 25% off).

    Niiiice! I love the original Upton Dress but the sleeves make it like a whole new dress every time. and I’m all about flutter sleeves these days so this is definitely going on my project list!

    This is great! I just ordered the paper pattern for the Upton and I can’t wait for it to get here. I wanted to buy it anyway, and just couldn’t say no now! I am also excited to be able to use the cap sleeve with the Springfield, which is honestly my most made pattern. It’s so useful! Happy sewing!

    Love the sleeves! I also love the Lenox shirtdress and am wondering if the sleeves can be used on Lenox. Thanks for providing such great patterns.
