In love with the Alcott dress

This is the first Casherette pattern I bought, but it won't be the last! I love how easy it is to grade between sizes. The instructions are very clear and guide you through every step. After grading there were no other alterations needed, so I got a perfect fit in one go!

Love this pattern

I have already made 3 dresses for my daughter. She loves them all. She has requested more. My daughter teaches kindergarten and she loves wearing this dress to teach in. She says it is so comfortable. Thank you for a great pattern that is so well written with many tutorials.

Very comfortable and flattering

Lengthened the bodice and the skirt by 1" each (I'm 5 foot 8) and found skirt just about knee length on me.

First successful dress

I adore the Alcott pattern. With the cup sizes already provided, I was able to make a beautiful fitted dress. I've made 3 Alcotts and I wear them all the time. I've made another knit dress that was technically wearable, but frumpier (because I didn't do an FBA and none were included.) I love the crossed-front bodice... it ensures my bust isn't constricted, something that often causes shoulder pain.
