A few months ago, I took the plunge and purchased an Appleton Dress kit (pattern + fabric) from Cashmerette Patterns. I've had my eye on the Appleton since it's release, but couldn't bring myself to spend the money on it. What can I say? I'm cheap.
I am so happy that I bought the kit. The fabric is to die for and this is the first pattern I've used that didn't need major alterations. It was even easy to make using just a regular sewing machine. Jenny at Cashmerette has put a lot of hard work into her patterns and it shows.
