A review of Cashmerette Appleton Dress
I’ve sewn a few wrap dresses in my time but finding that perfect fit at the bustline has proved somewhat elusive…until now! The Appleton by Cashmerette is a revelation!
I’m kicking myself for not making it sooner really as it’s also an incredibly quick and simple sew; which is fantastic in a pattern that’s likely to end up as a TNT … plus the fact that you can also get the wrap cardigan style top expansion pack for it! However, there are a few things worth mentioning – namely, that the cutting out Legend is different from a lot of patterns, i.e. the grey shaded pieces denote the RIGHT side – a fact which very nearly derailed me when cutting out!
I’ve made two versions so far – one in a lighter-weight knit suitable for summer and a long-sleeved one in a heavier stretch velvet – perfect for the Holidays!
