Designed by and for curvy women, the Appleton’s innovative neckband construction prevents gaping across your bust. Do a celebratory shimmy, because this bodice has you well covered!

Appleton Dress

I love my Appleton Dress! I was able to easily grade between sizes and the instructions were well written and easy to understand. It was also a quick sew, which was very gratifying. I can't wait to make another one!

Great Fit

I used the size calculator to determine how to cut out my Appleton dress, shaking my head all the way, I just knew anything with that many size changes wasn't going to fit. Well, it fits perfectly. Never, ever had I made something I didn't have to fuss with to fit this oddly-shaped body.. Very pleased. I added a simple pleated skirt so I could show off the border print and changed the shape of the sleeve. Will be making more of these. Now we just need to be let out of quarantine so I can wear it.

Fairly easy to put together

Easy to follow directions. Wish it had more options like a more flared skirt or suggestions on color blocking or finishing

Best dress in the collection!

This is a fantastic dress to sew and to wear!!!
It’s comfortable and can be incorporated in casual as well as smart ware. It’s a particularly well designed wrap dress, that doesn’t gape at the cleavage.
