i loved the pattern .it fits well .easy to make
I really enjoyed making this pattern. I made the size 14 c/d. I like the shape of the skirt and the lined top. My problem with finding patterns is they always need FBA’s. I’ve tried it on so many patterns and never been happy. This pattern means I didn’t need too. The only problem for me is that I am not really a full plus size so I found the short sleeves were too full. Next time I will use the sleeves from the Moneta dress by Seamwork and I think that will solve it.
Easy instructions to follow, great fit with the cup sizes, just all around perfect!
I love the pattern very easy to follow
I love a sewing challenge and my nephew’s recent wedding reception certainly provided that. A morning brunch reception, 1000 miles from home, in an historic building in a park where the weather could be anywhere from 65 to 100 degrees, and might be held inside or outside! Add a cancer diagnosis, lumpectomy and radiation 6 weeks before the event, I needed a dressy casual comfortable travels well quick to sew dress that looks good on me. Enter the Turner.
I had one weekend to cut and sew the Turner. I emailed Cashmerette my measurements and the size thought I should start out with. Carrie replied quickly with suggestions that worked beautifully. I made a quick muslin of the bodice and one sleeve. I added 1” to the length of the bodice, did a full bicep adjustment (directions on their website), and added an 1” to the length of the
skirt. I also used the pocket add on from the website. I used a Liverpool knit to make my dress. The Turner met all my needs. It is stylish, comfortable, traveled well, and making it gave me a sense of control during a very chaotic time. It didn’t hurt that I received many compliments on my dress. Thanks Cashmerette!
