I LOVE the turner dress. I am a great fan of the fit and flare because it shows off my best features. I bought a kit originally so I could guage the right type of weight best suited to style. I have made three more since. It is such a great basic pattern to make your own. My latest version finished today is red with white spots with a high neck and I attached a semi pussy bow tie. Great fun to make, quick and easy instructions. Thanks yet again Jenny.
Another great designed pattern and little to no alterations! X
The Turner Dress was my first attempt at a knit garment. It was a quick and easy sew and fits like a dream. I've already planned my next two versions of it. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
I love the dress and the pattern was easy to follow. I do wish clear elastic had been included in the list of notions. I was in the middle of sewing and had to improvise when I got to that step.
Great dress and fits like a dream. Just made my usual bodice lengthening because I'm tall. It's swirly and very fun. Will make it again. Very quick and easy, and very professional results.
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.
