The Turner dress is the 2nd item I have made in knit fabric...ever! The instructions were so easy to follow, the pattern is well drafted and I can't believe how happy I am with my finished dress! It is so floaty and feminine. I can't wait to make more
The fit is fantastic. Arms, shoulders, everywhere. Anyone who sews can understand how excited I was to have a wearable item after first try. Only change I made ahead was lengthen the torso by an inch, and I am glad I did. Once completed, the dress had a bad ripple in the front, mainly because I am peanut shaped- maybe from making it longer, or because my belly does not round as much at the front? A quick seam took care of that and the second dress I simply made the front bodice less curved which was perfect.
I now have my new favorite item in my wardrobe.
The Turner dress is very flattering on me, comfortable to wear, and a quick easy sew. I had a LOT of trouble getting the Upton to fit me perfectly (7 muslins!), but the Turner fit perfectly with nothing more than a narrow shoulder adjustment. I didn't make a test muslin, and it wasn't necessary. I'll be making lots more Turner dresses.
This is my absolute favourite pattern. So quick and easy to make, fits perfectly and is so comfy. Can’t wait to make more!
I have made 4 Turners so far. They are the perfect mix between flattering, comfy and pretty! I will make many more!
