Washington Dress Pattern by Cashmerette

Regular price £16.50
/
Tax included.

Mixing the comfort of a knit bodice with the fabric possibilities of a woven skirt, the Washington Dress gives you the freedom to play with colors and textures, for a look that’s uniquely you. Like all Cashmerette Patterns, the bodice comes in three cup sizes (C/D, E/F, and G/H), which makes fitting a cinch!

Style wise, the Washington Dress gives you endless design options. The knit bodice features a figure-enhancing scoop neckline and three sleeve variations: short, three-quarter, or full length. The A-line skirt cleverly combines woven fabric with a heavy knit yoke, eliminating the need for closures and allowing you to comfortably slip the dress over your head. For additional tummy control, the front yoke can be made from a woven fabric.

 

SEWING LEVEL: Advanced beginner.

SIZING: 12 to 28, in three cup sizes (C/D, E/F, G/H). The bodice of this dress is designed to be close fitting, so if you want a more skimming fit, we recommend going up a size in the bodice. See Sizing Guide.

RECOMMENDED FABRIC: 

Bodice: Light to midweight knit fabric such as jersey or ITY with at least 50% crosswise stretch. 

Yoke: Heavy knit fabric such as ponte or scuba. For more support, make from a mid to heavyweight woven.

Skirt: Mid to heavyweight woven fabric, such as cotton, linen, canvas, or upholstery fabric.  

NOTIONS: Thread, ballpoint or stretch needle, universal needle, 1.5 yards (1.4 meters)  of clear 1/4 inch (6mm) elastic (optional).

Testimonials

Thank you so much for my necklace and earrings. My sons were quite bemused that a vendor knew me by name and your personal touch made us all feel good. So much nicer than the faceless Amazon or even the posh mens clothing stores that I frequented (virtually) over Christmas.

I love the necklace and earrings - you were right they do match and I will share your site with friends

Myself and my daughter came in to choose a pattern to get us back into sewing again. Lizzy was so helpful, talking us through all of the patterns she has and what fabrics would suit the pattern and our skill level. We are so exicited to get started and thats thanks to Lizzy's patience and help in the shop. We can't wait to come on one of your workshops.
