Bodice too short

This was my first sewing project. I'm not sure if this was something I did wrong. I'm 46" upper bust, 49.5" full bust, 42" waist and 46" hip and am usually an HH cup bra. I followed a size 20g/h bodice graded for the skirt but when I came to make the bodice it literally stopped just below my bust at the bottom of my bra line. No where near my waist! Which has meant it has lots of extra material around my waist and looks as bad or rather worse than a RTW dress (I'm usually 1-2 sizes bigger on top than bottom so there's always extra material around the waist and hip and was the whole driver to wanting to learn to sew). It seems to fit fine across my bust and at my shoulders it just stops so very short of my waist. I noticed there is a cut here line to lengthen the bodice but nothing in the instructions said to consider the length of the bodice or how to measure it. Ive given 4 stars I'm sure this is something i have done wrong or should have known about rather than the pattern. Maybe sewing just isn't for me!

Super quick sew

I'm fairly new to sewing and found this quick and easy to put together. I found the sew-along blog to be very helpful when it came to the bodice neckline. I am an apple/rectangular shape and the dress is very flattering.

Perfect Fit with Assistance

I had to ask for help to get assistance for the proper size for my mom. My email was answered in record time. They told me exactly how to grade the pattern. The dress was a perfect fit. It's a great pattern!

Smart and Comfy

The Turner was the first Cashmerette pattern I tried to sew and am now a convert, the drafting is great. I'm not quite the usual Cashmerette model as while definitely curvy I don't have the full bust. But this pattern worked for me choosing the correct sizing for my bodice and grading out for the waist/hips. I will be adding several more Turners to my wardrobe over the next few months including a couple of definitely Work Turners and an overlay Turner for going out. Love it.

The dress fits perfectly

The Turner dress was my first attempt at sewing a knit dress. I love how the dress turned out! The dress fits perfectly. I used the size feature on the website . It was spot on. The instruction were clear and easy to follow. I am in the middle of sewing a second one.
