I am pleased with the Cashmerette patterns because I don't have to do a FBA - it's built in already! Nice flattering styles and room for a little pattern hacking here and there if we want to change things up! Thank you for the size calculator - it takes the guesswork out!
I used the calculator on the website to find the size best for me. The pattern went together very easily I used a sateen so ended up taking it in at the waist a bit (because of the slight stretch I guess) I am very pleased with the finished dress and feel absolutely beautiful in it.
I love this dress pattern. It is fun, flattering and flirty. I have made this dress now 4 times in a variety of fabrics and the end result each time has been the same. I always get complements on the style of the dress which does wonders for the self esteem. I am looking forward to expanding my wardrobe with the expansion pack.
I have had to play with the pleating lines when I have purchased fabric not wide enough to cut on the fold as I don't want a seam line down the middle and even though it was a challenge, it was completely doable. I can now make this dress in a week with no alterations needed. Thank you Cashmerette!
Have just made the Upton. Woohoo no need to do a fba!!! Love love love it! I can see I will be making many more of this dress!!!
I have always sewn for my girls but have always been afraid to sew for myself as fitting is a big challenge. Enter Cashmerette. With only a few adjustments I made the Upton dress. Twice! And love both of them. I love wearing something that actually fits! Thanks you!
