A review of Cashmerette Appleton Dress

Reviewed by SewSarahSmith on 19th October, 2018

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!

I’ve got a blog post on both up on my blog – the second also has a few tips on sewing / hemming stretch fabrics.
