The Appleton Dress by Cashmerette Patterns

While I wasn't a tester for the Appleton Dress ~ vacation and an emergency took care of that ~ Jenny was so sweet and sent me a copy of the dress and the fabric because I truly believe in her new patterns and company...and cause she's kewl like that!



Because I want everyone who can to experience the amazingness of Cashmerette Patterns, I'm offering the pattern and accompanying fabric as a giveaway.



The pattern is a size 12-28 with cup sizes C-H. The fabric is the bird blue and white knit. If you like a wrapdress, several women in the blogosphere have made amazing copies ~ here, here, here and here. As you can see, not everyone was a plus size woman wearing it, so it works for a variety of shapes and bust sizes.

Here are the rules...

1. You must leave a comment here telling me where you'd wear the dress you'll make.

2. You must follow me on Instagram and leave your Instagram name along with your other comment.

3. The giveaway will be open until Wednesday, October 28th at 11:59EST and sorry but this is only open to US residents.

So if you've been wondering what all the fuss was about, here is your opportunity to find out for yourself.  I think you will be presently surprised at how great the pattern is!

...as always more later!

  1. This is one opportunity I'd love to win. I've been craving that pattern but things have been tight and getting tighter. I had some of that fabric this summer and used it up on a maxi for my grand daughter, I love the design and it was easy to stitch, a nice dress weight. My (other) daughter and I are the same size. I'd let her wear it to college where she is also employed in a work study program, and I'd demand occasional wearing rights, for a night out sometime.

  4. I've been reading a lot about this pattern and I'm excited to see other patterns down the road. I've been sewing for a long time but am just now starting to sew for myself. So far I've stuck to knit Tshirts and tops. Id like to learn to adjust patterns but I think I need a few successful projects to boost my confidence first.

  34. Okay, second go because my dog decided to help and lick my trackpad while I was commenting. Silly Maltese! You are totally sweet and super Kewl for offering up such a sweet prize! As for me, I would totally make this up and wear it to work. I love the idea of a wrap dress, but it is the one thing I've never tried to sew. Wrap skirts, sure, wrap dresses, not so much.
