Rivermont Dress & Top
Breeze from day to night with the Rivermont Dress and Top!

Both views offer three sleeve lengths - short, elbow or long - and are designed for ponte knits, so you're comfortable in any season. Whether unwinding at happy hour or turning heads on date night, the Rivermont is just your style!

The Rivermont dress is a great pattern, easily assembled and the fit is very flattering. I'm long waisted so I make an adjustment to every pattern. I made it in pink scuba and go rave reviews. I've already cut it again in ponte. I'm becoming quite a Cashmerette fan - more patterns please!
This pattern came together so easy. Lovely to make and comfy to wear.
I've been a huge fan of Jenny's Cashmerette patterns since I made my first of many Washington dresses. I've not tried all the patterns but the Rivermont was a winner and my favorite. I like the simplicity of the style because it can be a wardrobe basic or a bold bright party dress. I made mine in a black ponti knit and it's a great basic I can wear everywhere. The pattern didn't need any adjustment and was a simple sew. I'm going to make it in a bold geometric scuba next.
Very happy about the product and about your service. I wrote you a note and the answer came quickly and you solved my problem.
In fact I recommand you to my friends. Thank for thinking about the not so slim persons.
I’ve been wearing my rivermont dresses (one in lightweight scuba, one in ponte) to job interviews for the last few weeks. Both dresses fit wonderfully, look fantastic, and I feel great in them - so comfortable, even commuting long distances. I’ve had compliments from friends who say it looks like I bought it from a particular pricey store in these parts.
I initially wasn’t convinced about this style (it took seeing someone else’s grey ponte version to convince me), but now I think it might be my favourite pattern. It’s pretty quick to make, even for a beginner, and the instructions are clear.
