Lots of Compliments!

I sewed the Upton in a beautiful formal fabric to attend my friend’s wedding. I received many compliments. It was easy to sew. I whipped it up in about three sittings.  I plan to use the pattern to make more Upton‘s in different fabrics.

Fun and easy to sew!

I purchased this pattern to sew a dress to wear to my cousin's wedding. The instructions were very straightforward and well-written, resulting in a beautiful garment that I was proud to wear to the wedding. Keep up the great work, Jenny!

I love your classic styles that include all body types. It’s refreshing to be able make clothes that fit me even with my body shape especially since I’m not a box. Love you ladies bunches.

Upton is great!

I have been making my own dress patterns for many years. Occasionally I would buy a commercial pattern but was always disappointed by the construction and fit. However, I've found the Upton works well for me. True, I have tweaked a few things on subsequent dresses but, overall, it fit very well from the start. In the last two months I've made 9 Uptons and have depleted my stash to the point that I feel no guilt (well, not much) in doing some fabric shopping. I might need a new closet, though.
