Pembroke Dress & Tunic
I’m completely in love….this was a breeze to sew…and the best part is that the pattern is made for curves.
An easy make. Beautiful neckline and cuffed sleeve. The ties are okay, but I’m not a huge fan. The dress certainly needs them for shape, but I’m undecided on tying them in front or back. They have a tendency to get in my way, but wouldn’t look right if cut shorter.
I loved this pattern, it was super easy to follow. I made the tunic with the scooped neckline, and have already got plans for my next one!
I bought the Pembroke to try out Cashmerette and love it. I made it shorter, as a basic long-sleeved shirt and following the size calculator, the fit was great. I have made several in sweatshirt-weight fabrics and they are so comfortable, yet easy to dress up with a scarf. I've also modified it to a quarter-zip top. The directions are clear and make it easy - I love the booklet format of them. This will be a go-to pattern for me, for sure.
Cute dress pattern that is well drafted and true to size. Use the Cashmerette size calculator to get your size, I’ve found it very accurate. Instructions are easy to follow, however I’d prefer colour photos. Overall I’m very happy with the pattern and will definitely buy more from Cashmerette.
