I just love the fit, it’s so flattering A+
I love this dress! Easy to sew and fabulous to wear 😀
I did order the PDF pattern in error as my printer is not good enough to create the pattern. So I ordered the regular one right away. I have so many good things to say about this company. I was making the Roseclair dress for my 17 year old granddaughter. She is lovely, but her body shape does not conform to the average garment nor typical pattern. A further challenge was I live in New Jersey and she lives in Illinois but I took Cashmerette’s advice and made a muslin bodice and sent it out for her to try. It fit fine, so I made the dress. I have been sewing since I was 11, which is 66 years ago. She did request a long sleeve which I was able to do. Everything about this pattern was first class. I did have a couple of questions with respect to size before starting and sent emails to the company. I received a response right away that was very helpful. I hope Cashmerette is able to continue with such superior customer service. Dress is finished, fits beautifully and best of all, she loves it! Thank you!
I made a straight 16D even though I should have graded from a 14D bust to a 18 waist and a 20 hip. I went for view A but made the skirt longer by about 6". It fits like a glove and the seersucker fabric from Merchant & Mills is perfect for this pattern. As usual the instructions (even for Swiss girls) are clear and the dress is quite a quick make.
I made the top version of this pattern in size 20/E cup with no adjustments. I used a viscose fabric that had good drape and found it very comfortable to wear. It was a very easy sew and a very flattering style that hides my belly. I will be sewing more of this pattern as tops.
