Cashmerette: Appleton wrap dress...LOVE!!!

Hi, I love, love, love wrap dresses. This would be the 1st one that fit the 1st time out of the package. I did the PDF. I cut a 20 E\F at the bust and graded to the 24 from the waist to hips. I messed up and cut a 20 at the waist. I also added about 2 inches to the length. This was made from a wrapped remnant pc from my local fabric store. This was my tester. So I guess you would call it the “wearable muslin”. It was way too low at the bust, so for the next one I will use the finished measurements and be sure to cut the waist properly. But I still wore my dress with a denim jacket and a cami under it for work. I love, love, love this dress and not having to do a FBA was a plus. I know we all can do one, but it was nice not having to do so. Next time I want to add another inch or two so I can wear heals. I am staring my summer/fall transitional wear. Happy sewing and thanks for checking out. Oh...excuse the bare feet, I just wanted to get the pic in...
