Upton dress

I can only praise this pattern! I have been having difficulty fitting my curvy daughter and had given up sewing for her when I found your patterns. I only had to do 2 muslins of the bodice to get the correct cup size and no other alterations were needed. Daughter now has 2 new Upton dresses and has received many compliments. We are now waiting on the arrival of the Harrison shirt pattern to make her some work shirts.

Happy in pink

Great fit and instructions. I made two adjustments. The skirt is not as full because my fabric was too narrow to fit the pattern. The waist was an inch short so I removed the original band and replaced it with a new band an inch wider. Next time I will add the inch length to the bodice portion. This is a comfortable, fun dress! Thanks!

My first dress!

I am a beginner sewist and purchased the Upton pattern after seeing it over and over again on Instagram and loving it every. single. time. It seemed like a pattern that I could tackle and learn a lot, but still probably be successful at. And thanks to Jenny's directions and the help I received from my advanced sewist friends in fitting, it was a tremendous success. I wear it to work and am always thrilled on the compliments that I get. I don't know that I've ever had a better feeling than being able to respond "Thanks! I made it!" I used a cotton lawn from Cotton and Steel and a somewhat heavier mystery fabric that I inherited from my grandma. For a casual summer dress, I think the cotton lawn was a perfect choice!

I had help to get the fit just right and because of that, it's perfect. Had I not had that help, it still would have been a nice dress, so don't fear if you don't have near-professionals in your life. You can do it!

Perfect Plus size bridesmaid dress

My daughter wanted me to be in her wedding but I was having issues finding a dress that was flattering. I didn't want anything too young or old looking. David's Bridal was a joke for anyone bigger that a size 12. The dresses were poorly made and $200. I was able to make the Upton floor length and found a Kona solid to match the other bridal party member dresses perfectly. My dress cost me a total of $53 and fit perfectly.
