Great Pattern

My daughter has just started sewing her own clothes. This was the second garment she chose to make. It turned out like it was supposed to and she loves it!

So easy to make and wear!

What a great pattern! I'm a beginning sewer with only a few completed garments under my belt, and I had no trouble with this dress's construction or fit. I really need to buy more Cashmerette patterns! I also recommended Appleton to a newbie friend--I would indeed recommend it to any sewer.

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.
