I purchased this pattern to sew a dress to wear to my cousin's wedding. The instructions were very straightforward and well-written, resulting in a beautiful garment that I was proud to wear to the wedding. Keep up the great work, Jenny!
Upton Dress printed pattern
I love your classic styles that include all body types. It’s refreshing to be able make clothes that fit me even with my body shape especially since I’m not a box. Love you ladies bunches.
I have been making my own dress patterns for many years. Occasionally I would buy a commercial pattern but was always disappointed by the construction and fit. However, I've found the Upton works well for me. True, I have tweaked a few things on subsequent dresses but, overall, it fit very well from the start. In the last two months I've made 9 Uptons and have depleted my stash to the point that I feel no guilt (well, not much) in doing some fabric shopping. I might need a new closet, though.
I usually do not review but this pattern is the best I have ever worked with. Instructions were easy to follow. I was making this dress for a gal in Ohio. I live 2-1/2 hours away in Michigan. As it is advised in the instructions of pattern to make a mock dress first maybe out of muslin. I did and it fit the gal exactly. So I bought fabric for the dress and made it the same way as the mock dress without the gal I was making it for. So took finished dress down to Ohio and it fit perfectly and so flattering on. Thank Cashmerette for making these patterns that are easy to follow and flattering to larger size women.
