I love this dress. The pattern is drafted so well, all of the pieces went in perfectly. I made it with a Ponte, and it can be dressed up or down for any occasion. I was advised by a sewing teacher (who had never used Cashmerette patterns) to make a size 4 sizes larger than I needed. There was a lot of ripping and recutting going on and the dress still turned out great. The moral of the story is to trust the pattern envelope for Cashmerette.
This dress is absolutely beautiful. I made one for myself and then had requests from a few family members. Each one fit beautifully according to the size charts. Blending sizes is a breeze too.
Directions were very well written.
Made muslin top and the fit was simple enough to adjust
Quite excited that I could finally have a 'skater dress' that fit me well
So nice to not have to worry about fitting-I love the swishy skirt.
Easy to cut out and fun to sew.
I’ve always avoided dresses with a defined waist until now. The Turner is great, I love the smooth fit, the lined bodice is inspirational the neckline is lovely and lining the bodice is a perfect way to keep the line looking good.
The skirt is floaty and lovely, my concerns about this dress not being right for me wierd body shape is totally unfounded, it sits perfectly on what could be/ should be my waist, hangs beautifully, and swishes enticingly.
I just love it.
