I love this dress! It's a simple make but very stylish. I made a size 16 C/D cup. It's like wearing secret pajamas. The instructions are very clear and the pieces matched well. I'm planning a few more of these in different fabrics for occasions and casual
Cashmerette where have you been all my sewing life? Nearing 60 now, been sewing since 7th grade. Even when I was 17 and nearly skinny I had more curves than the average pattern sloper allows. I've sewn most of my own clothes, including for professional dress, for decades and have NEVER made a pattern (or one that fit) without adjusting for full bust. The Turner Dress? Fit first time, no adjustments (G/H bust). Ive made several now of variety of fabrics (ponte, ITY, unspecified end of bolt something-something) and have only adjusted neckline and sleeve length. Thank You- ThAnK yOu- thank you!!
I was worried about sewing with jersey but this pattern was brilliant and full of helpful tips. A really good range of sizing options, especially with the different cup sizes. I love my final dress, I'm already making my next one!
I am a beginner curvy sewist. I have no idea how to alter patterns to make them fit better which usually results in a lot of cursing and tossing the garment (and a lot of money on fabric, zips, buttons, etc. ) into the trash. So....imagine my surprise when my first attempt turned out a dress that I ROUTINELY wear to work! The pattern was easy, but add to it the online tutorial (which I would love to have subtitled since I am hearing impaired) and I made the first version of this dress in just over 4 hours. WIN! I would give the pattern more stars if they were available. Way to go Cashmerette--you are two for two with me!
Nice and easy
