A real wrap over dress

The Appleton is a really comfortable%2C easy to wear dress. The only difficulty I found was attaching the neckband to the rest of the dress but you manage in the end with patience…%0D%0AI made the 1st dress a little longer but on my 2nd version %28in a beautiful Italian jersey print%29 I forgot to add the extra length to half of the dress … so had to go for the pattern length which I find a bit short.%0D%0AAlso on the long sleeved version the wrist are quite “snug” and I have tiny wrists.%0D%0AAll in all I think it’s one of the best wrap over dress patterns available.

Appleton dress

It looked fabulous. I have to give credit to the size calculator. Based on my measurements, I would have make a straight size. Using the calculator I graded between sizes although it looked wrong, and my dress fit perfectly. I have not made any other pattern that fits me better
