Appleton dress review

I really liked how easy this pattern was to follow on the tutorial. Plus I was able to access the sew along on the website and that helped me tremendously! There will be some tweaks that I will do next time. I cut it too short for my liking so I will leave it a little longer. And I will lower the strap hole as it sits way too high and I cannot find it without having someone help me.

I love all of my Appleton Dresses!

This is a great pattern! The only adjustment that I needed to make was to grade from a size 16 bodice to a size 20 hips. I've made it three times and have fabric for at least one more. I'm a beginner sewist - the instructions are very clear, my dresses turned out great and I feel wonderful when I wear them.

Appleton dress

Loved it! Clear instructions, great fit. I made it in stretch velvet and the simplicity of the construction really works with the fabric. As a result it is not only comfortable but also very chique looking.

Amazing dress I should have made sooner!

Loved this pattern! So easy for someone that constantly has to do FBA - all I had to do was move the bust darts! The fit is super flattering! Many more to come...
