Love the Appleton Dress!

I added in-seam pockets & made it a maxi & got so many compliments! Best part: it’s one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing I own. Love everything about it.

Really flattering dress

I really love the Cashmerette Appleton dress, because it is so flattering. Plus, it is such an easy make too. The only thing I struggled with in the beginning, was attaching the waist ties to the neckband. But when I watched the sew along, this was easily fixed. Since I love the pattern so much, I have made a second version already. Bravo Cashmerette! I feel this is going to be a wardrobe staple. Have received many compliments already.

Fast and easy

It was easy to make. I would use a more medium weight jersey next time as mine was a bit thin. I made a no adjustment (except for the hem ). It was a quick and flattering summer dress. I’ll make it again.

Appleton

Never have I had a dress which fitted so well and I could make myself. This pattern has given me so much confidence in myself and my sewing xxx

Maxi Appleton Wrap Dress

I made a maxi-fied Appleton dress for my sister. I just added about 14 inches to the bottom. She lives in another state, so I wasn't able to make a muslin, but it fit her great right out of the envelope!
