I just started sewing clothes in a serious fashion this year with my extra quarantine time and the Turner dress was one of my firsts. I LOVE this dress. I dropped the waist a bit and had to blend a couple of sizes but it was super easy to do and the end product is fabulous! I wear it all the time and have gotten quite a few comments from strangers. Thanks Cashmerette Team for making curvy girl patterns. My self confidence has increased since sewing & wearing your patterns.
Very nice pattern. The shape of the skirt is quite flattering. Not as casual as a straight T-shirt dress but not as girly as something with a wider skirt. The fit is perfect, as had been my experience with all Cashmerette patterns. A few things to note. The waistline is a bit on the Empire side, I'm 5'6" and it hits me about two inches above my natural waistline, even after lengthening the bodice by an inch. The V-neck is lowish, check how it is before cutting. It's easy enough to raise the neckline which I did the second time I made it. I also added pockets. I'm busy looking for fabric for Turner #3.
I LOVE the turner dress. I am a great fan of the fit and flare because it shows off my best features. I bought a kit originally so I could guage the right type of weight best suited to style. I have made three more since. It is such a great basic pattern to make your own. My latest version finished today is red with white spots with a high neck and I attached a semi pussy bow tie. Great fun to make, quick and easy instructions. Thanks yet again Jenny.
Another great designed pattern and little to no alterations! X
The Turner Dress was my first attempt at a knit garment. It was a quick and easy sew and fits like a dream. I've already planned my next two versions of it. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.
I love the dress and the pattern was easy to follow. I do wish clear elastic had been included in the list of notions. I was in the middle of sewing and had to improvise when I got to that step.
