What a surprise

I was so surprised when i basted everything, tried the dress and there were only some minor adjustments to do in the waist line! The most accurate pattern I've ever tried.

Successful Upton Dress

I recently made the Upton dress, View A, for my stepdaughter who is a size 24 F cup. This is the first time that I have sewn for her, but, having found your range of patterns, it won't be the last.

I had to enlarge the waist by 6", so adjusted the spacing of the pleats to keep the proportions looking good. The material used was a stretch cotton sateen, so I bound the neckline and armholes using the same material, instead of lining the bodice.

We were both thrilled with the outcome of a beautiful, well fitting dress.

I am an experienced home sewer but was very impressed with the quality of your pattern and the sewing instructions, as well as the versatility of the design. A very happy customer!

Flirty and flattering

This dress is just brilliant. Fits fantastically out of the envelope, although I've only made the pleated version so far. I've also hacked the dress into a skirt with a shaped waistband, and my sister has asked me to make her a dress from the pattern also. The Upton gets the seal of approval from me!

Happiness is a pattern that works.

It is not easy to create a pattern that can be used by women of many differing shapes and sizes but Cashmerette hae totally nailed it with the Upton. Being a well rounded hobbit shape I am delighted that the plus sizing isn't only suitable for 6ft tall glamazons but is easily adaptable to suit shorties like myself . And pockets you cant go past pockets.

Great dress

I love this dress pattern although I did find that the bodice was short, but after a little adjustment it fitted great. I would definitely recommend making a muslin of the bodice to get the right fit. Instructions were easy to follow and I had lots of compliments about how nice it looks.
