This wonderful dress pattern from Cashmerette is a clever combination of of comfort, style and versatility, the bodice is constructed from knit fabric and the skirt is made from woven fabrics. This combination gives you lots of freedom to create something unique with great colour and texture combinations possible.
Cashmerette patterns are perfect for a curvy figure and cater up to size 28. All Cashmerette sewing patterns the bodice/bust comes in 3 cup sizes making it very unlikely that you will have to do a full bust adjustment.
