The g&g Sewing Society - Appleton Dress Kit

This months g&g Sewing Society kit includes everything you need to make a gorgeous Cashmerette Patterns Appleton wrap dress.

This classic jersey wrap dress design, has a built-in waist tie and a deep v-neck with an innovative neckband construction that prevents gaping across the bust, along with a choice of 3 sleeve lengths: short, mid and full length.

With it's perfect knee length, its ideal for a summery staple and would also look lovely worn with tights or leggings for a more transitional look later in the year.

For this kit, we have chosen three amazing fabrics on the softest, silkiest, smoothest mirco modal fabric that have been knitted, dyed and printed right here in the UK, just for g&g.

This fabric has a nice amount of body, whilst still being light weight and it drapes beautifully. As it doesn't curl or roll at the edges like some other jerseys, it's easier to work with too - yay! The construction of this dress is fairly simple, so if you are still building up your skills with stretch fabrics it's a lovely project to work on.

Choose between two fabric length options (depending on the size you are making) below of either Deep Teal Plain, Bijou Spots print or Summer Flora print and choose what size range of the pattern you would prefer to customise the kit contents for what you need.
