Pembroke Dress & Tunic
Cute dress pattern that is well drafted and true to size. Use the Cashmerette size calculator to get your size, I’ve found it very accurate. Instructions are easy to follow, however I’d prefer colour photos. Overall I’m very happy with the pattern and will definitely buy more from Cashmerette.
I’ve made two versions already, one with scoop next & short sleeves, and one with jewel neck & mid-length sleeves. This is one of those patterns that’s easily completed in one day (only took one afternoon for the second one), and the dress is super comfortable. I especially like how flattering the waist tie looks.
I made this pattern in a medium weight sweater knit and the fit is so comfortable but cute. It’s a secret pajama pattern for me. I forgot to lengthen my sleeves on the pattern so I added cuffs and a hem band for a complimentary look. It one of my favorite dresses now!
I've made two Pembroke dresses so far and I love them so much! They're perfect for looking put together while feeling super comfortable. I made the first one in a bamboo/spandex jersey and the second in a viscose/poly rib knit. They're really different but I love them both!
I made the Pembroke in a lovely soft bamboo knit; it gets so many compliments every time I wear it! Somehow, Cashmerette managed to elevate a simple t-shirt dress into something nicer, yet keep it easy to sew. This dress is perfect for videoconference calls in this work-from-home more casual than usual era, and when life returns to normal, it'll be a running errand, brunch with friends, grab-and-go casual nice garment. It was easy to sew, and not having to do an FBA is positively swoon-worthy! This was my first Cashmerette pattern, but it won't be my last - I'm actually in the process of laying out something else, and already planning a French terry version of the Pembroke, with long sleeves and the cowl (just not sure if it'll be the tunic or a dress, in this work from home world).
