I started sewing my own clothes in february this year. I bought Appleton dress but the wrapping was just not not ideal for more active days. My friend recommended the Alcott instead and it's been love at first sight. I've sewn four so far and they do not look alike at all. I made one in french terry with a contrast color waistband that's more formal, a simple but high quality jersey for everyday on the cooler days, a cotton viscose jersey for summer and a double layer (skirt as well) combining simple yersey with see through tie dye stretchy lace. They do not look alike at all yet it's alle the same pattern. Wondeful!
I was amazed i needed almost no changes when following the size guide. I usually have to do a ton of them. The pattern was beautifully explained. I’d love to see a lightweight version with only a single layer top but this is fantastic. Im going to try more of her patterns for sure!!
This is the first Casherette pattern I bought, but it won't be the last! I love how easy it is to grade between sizes. The instructions are very clear and guide you through every step. After grading there were no other alterations needed, so I got a perfect fit in one go!
This was a great pattern to make up, true to size I lengthened the skirt to make it midi , would recommend .
I have already made 3 dresses for my daughter. She loves them all. She has requested more. My daughter teaches kindergarten and she loves wearing this dress to teach in. She says it is so comfortable. Thank you for a great pattern that is so well written with many tutorials.
