Appleton Dress

Love this pattern - i like the fact that i can grade between sizes and allow for my fuller bust without too much effort.

Fabulous Appleton Dress

Bought this pattern as part of G&G Sewing Society kit. My first ever me made wrap dresses. So quick and easy to construct. Love, love, love the fit. Have made a further 3 dresses. Very flattering.

Great resources and instructions, wish I had more on grading between sizes and how that impacts facings. Neckline is low for my frame (maybe because I’m petite).

Hi Carolina, If you'd like grading help in the future, check out where we have tons of grading advice for all our patterns!

Fabulous frock

Fantastic to finally have a pattern that fits my boobs but doesn’t drown me 👍

Great pattern

I got the Appleton dress as part of a Guthrie & Ghani kit. The dress was easy to make and the instructions very clear, it fits well even though I am not that curvy. The only issue I have is the ties tangling up with everything in the wash - need to knot first!
