My 'go to' dress pattern

I love this dress pattern. It is fun, flattering and flirty. I have made this dress now 4 times in a variety of fabrics and the end result each time has been the same. I always get complements on the style of the dress which does wonders for the self esteem. I am looking forward to expanding my wardrobe with the expansion pack.
I have had to play with the pleating lines when I have purchased fabric not wide enough to cut on the fold as I don't want a seam line down the middle and even though it was a challenge, it was completely doable. I can now make this dress in a week with no alterations needed. Thank you Cashmerette!

Thank you!

I have always sewn for my girls but have always been afraid to sew for myself as fitting is a big challenge. Enter Cashmerette. With only a few adjustments I made the Upton dress. Twice! And love both of them. I love wearing something that actually fits! Thanks you!

Beautiful Fit

This dress came out so lovely, the fit around the bust was so good I could not believe it was possible. Before I was always going up a size to fit my bust and it made everything else too big. This was perfect.

Upton Dress Obsession

I recently purchased the Upton Dress pattern And the sleeve expansion pack in a return to sewing after a long hiatus. What a revelation! I am a size 18-20 and normally am at the very top end of my most pattern sizing, having to make adjustments and often ending up with a garment that didn’t fit well. The Upton dress was a perfect fit at 18, and looked amazing! Even my muslin in $2 poplin is gorgeous, wearable and has prompted so many compliments at work. I’ve since made three more (linen, cotton and a rayon). I’m a teacher to having pockets is fantastic, and the modest neckline really suits my needs. I have used the cap sleeves the most (not really a flutter sleeve kind of girl). In all of these different fabrics and sleeves, everyone at work has been impressed with my sudden wardrobe expansion. Best of all, I feel comfortable, put-together and proud of how I look. This is a new and welcome experience. I can’t wait to explore more Cashmerette patterns.
