Appleton Dress

I've always wanted a wraparound dress. I've tried on dozens over the years but never found one that fit me. Over time I came to believe that is was physically impossible to make a wraparound dress to fit someone with a bust, because I never found one and never really saw one either. Then I found the Appleton pattern that looked pretty good. But I still didn't believe it would actually fit me. First I tried the C/D version and it was close but not perfect. Then, at their suggestion I tried the E/F version and OMG it is perfect. I've made 3 of them now, different sleeve lengths and fabrics. Once I had a stranger tell me my dress was beautiful and ask me where I found it because she'd never found a wrap dress that fit her. Really, this dress looks better on curvy women than on straight women but we didn't know it because "they" never made one that fit us. Thank you Jenny!

Love the Appleton Dress!

I added in-seam pockets & made it a maxi & got so many compliments! Best part: it’s one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing I own. Love everything about it.

Really flattering dress

I really love the Cashmerette Appleton dress, because it is so flattering. Plus, it is such an easy make too. The only thing I struggled with in the beginning, was attaching the waist ties to the neckband. But when I watched the sew along, this was easily fixed. Since I love the pattern so much, I have made a second version already. Bravo Cashmerette! I feel this is going to be a wardrobe staple. Have received many compliments already.

Fast and easy

It was easy to make. I would use a more medium weight jersey next time as mine was a bit thin. I made a no adjustment (except for the hem ). It was a quick and flattering summer dress. I’ll make it again.
