It's been my first Cashmerette pattern (and my first sewing pattern in english). I sewn this dress for my girl who was attending a wedding. She's a F cup and the Roseclair is her best fitting dress ever. Highly recommend. I will sew her another one for the winter.
Pattern instructions were clear and easy to follow. With only 7 pattern pieces it was a quick sew. I made a straight size 24 with a C/D cup but that turned out to be too big for me, so alterations were needed to get the fit right. I will make it again but will choose size 22 for the bodice then grade out to 24 for my hips.
Hi! I absolutely love this dress. It is the first dress I make that fits my shoulders and bust without any adjustments. The only issue I have with it is the inner side tie closure. It bulges and spoils the look. Next time I make it I will need to find a solution, a snap perhaps…
Love this dress, it is such a great fit on me. I made a size 18 G cup view A. I used 7 print fabrics and 2 solids in georgette fabric for my dress. I created patchwork fabric for the 3 skirt tiers and picked out the prints I loved for the bodice and sleeves. I backed my fabrics where necessary with white georgette. It went together easily with good instructions and I fortunate fit wise to only have to add some width to the centre back to accomodate a broad back.
This was my first experience with a Cashmerette pattern. I chose the Roseclair dress based on others' reviews and am not disappointed. This pattern is well drafted, and using the recommended size for me, it fits perfectly. I was expecting to have to make alterations but didn't need any, except to shorten the length of the skirt as I am only 5'1". I used a drapey rayon print, and now have a beautiful dress for special occasions. I especially love the unique sleeves!
I just love the fit, it’s so flattering A+
