The Appleton is a really comfortable, easy to wear dress. The only difficulty I found was attaching the neckband to the rest of the dress but you manage in the end with patience…
I made the 1st dress a little longer but on my 2nd version (in a beautiful Italian jersey print) I forgot to add the extra length to half of the dress … so had to go for the pattern length which I find a bit short.
Also on the long sleeved version the wrist are quite “snug” and I have tiny wrists.
All in all I think it’s one of the best wrap over dress patterns available.

Mine turned out so pretty! It was a great fit and I love to wear it!
It looked fabulous. I have to give credit to the size calculator. Based on my measurements, I would have make a straight size. Using the calculator I graded between sizes although it looked wrong, and my dress fit perfectly. I have not made any other pattern that fits me better
Wow a wrap dress that actually fits me and stays secure all day! I love this pattern because it fits my boobs so beautifully and no gapping or spillage. I feel so good when I wear my Appleton and can't wait to make a few more. This is such a brilliant pattern
