It was worth it!

So, by nature I have limits on what I will spend on patterns for myself. I have been looking at the Appleton for over a year. I have read the reveiws, looked at the makes and talked myself out of it for various reasons. Well, in December I bought myself the Appleton as a present and I am happy I did! It covers, flows and flatters. Could I ask for more?

Sehr guter Schnitt

Bester Schnitt für Frauen mit etwas mehr Bauch. Ich musste nichts ändern, außer der Länge. Einfach und schnell zu nähen. Kann ich sehr weiter empfehlen.

Great wrap dress pattern

The pattern was straightforward to cut and sew, particularly with a serger. I realized I made a cutting error though, because I was trying to eke this out of a too-short piece of fabric so mine ended up being an exact mirror image. It's very flattering, fits great and I've had a lot of compliments on it, even from total strangers in the mall. Someone even remarked how the neckline doesn't gape at all and that she can't find a wrap dress that doesn't gape, which gave me the perfect opportunity to brag that I made it and the pattern is specifically designed for no gaping!
