Dream wrap dress!

I don't know why it took me so long to get on the Appleton band wagon. This is a wonderful pattern. Clear instructions, a quick and simple sew, and a gorgeous fit. It is very comfortable and stylish. I love my first one and I'm already planning to make more

This is the best wrap dress I've ever made

I cannot recommend this pattern enough, it is the BEST wrap dress I've ever made and I can't stop making it. It's perfect in the bust and arms and hips, it makes me feel gorgeous and put together and sexy, and I love it! Off to go make five more....

I'm practically obsessed with this dress!!

I'd consider myself an experienced beginner sewist. I recently started sewing with knit fabric and decided to try out the Appleton dress. I LOVE it! The pattern is so carefully designed, and true to Cashmerette's word, the neckline has never gaped even once. I typically tie the ties looking in the mirror to get my hemline straight, and once it's tied, it never budges throughout the day. I sewed it in a light- to midweight jersey fabric (Art Gallery Fabrics jersey) and it's as comfy as a bathrobe but infinitely cuter. I'm sewing my second Appleton next!
