I love the layer PDFs so that I can print just the sizes I need! I am so excited to add to my Cashmerette dress collection!
This dress turned out beautifully! I wanted to use up some remnants of a scuba print and a Liverpool solid, and I bought a coordinating solid for the skirt. Only mods were my adding 1" to the bodice because I'm tall. The pattern is well drafted and very easy to put together. I will make more!
This my scond one. Husband thought i had bought it great compliment. Top from black t shirt material skirt sciba from Lady Mcelroy design with snakes beetles etc. I know its not woven but it works well. Band is from black ponte. Love it
Wow!!! What a pattern, What a dress. I’ve only just had a serious look at this pattern because we are in the depths of a cold Aussie winter and I’m still sewing warm garments. But, this is a pattern to absolutely die for in the nicest possible way. Being able to combine Knits and wovens in a single garments is brilliant!
It is going to give me so many different combinations, colourways and dare I say opportunities to use some beautiful offcuts from some of my previous makes! I love the Ponte band this is such an inspiration. One of the biggest (!) issues for many of the Fluffy ladies out there is that our bodies appear shapeless, as we try to manage bust size, then grade out to a larger waist and hip. This band gives the appearance of a lovely, well proportioned shape, as well as cunningly providing a smooth comfortable line over one of - for me at any rate - an awkward to fit body part.
I adore my Cashmerette dresses, I get so many compliments, but more important I think is that I can just open up my pattern lay it out on my fabric and KNOW that it is going to look fabulous.
This dress is the best one yet. I’m saying this now, but I’m sure that very soon another great pattern is going to come along and I’ll have another favourite.
I should say I’m 70+ but feel 21 in these dresses.
Thank you girls
I am the opposite of most larger women. I am big busted and narrower through the hips. This dress worked perfectly for my shape. I just narrow it from the waist down! I did have trouble and have to pull out some seams because I forgot that not all seams were not the same! Be careful of that!
