Amazing fit, easily put together

This was my first Cashmerette pattern, and I adore the way it came out. I've always known wrap shirts and dresses were a good look for me, so I decided on Dartmouth in order to see how I liked her patterns. The pattern came together easily and fit perfectly with minimal adjustments. I'm so glad I took the leap! (As a bonus, it is perfect for nursing or pumping, and could even be used with a double electric pump.)

A really solid pattern

The only reason I'm not rating this with 5 stars is that the difference between the ruched and non-ruched pattern pieces isn't obvious enough. The piece names need to be larger and clearer - I ended up cutting out the wrong things because of the confusion.

Otherwise, this is a great pattern that is quick to make up. I've made four in different sleeve length in ITY, poly crepe jersey, and very drapey rayon knit. All are great.

5/5

An excellent pattern, well written and easy to construct, even for a newbie like me. I had an instant success. Love the different cup sizes and its relatively easy to get a fit that is unique to your body type. If you buy this pattern you will want to buy the rest! Happy sewing

A good fit

with an elastic band inside the band in the neckline it keeps the boobs inside very nicely.

My favorite shirt pattern

Dartmouth looks great and feels great. It never gapes. It is dressier than a tee shirt, but just as easy to sew and just as comfortable to wear. I've made two, and I want to make one for every day of the week.
