Kate and I and her mom made great progress today on my first @cashmerette #uptondress the bodice is almost completely together after a great fitting lesson. We added a dart and adjusted the shoulder to fit mine that tend to slope. It was a really good lesson in not judging your body but realizing that every pattern is made for one form and so for best fit on ANYONE patterns will need to be adjusted. Kate did a fabulous job piecing the skirt and the pockets look lovely (and aren’t down by my knees!). Onward tomorrow!
Charlotte’s done an awesome job of showing how you can style an Upton Dress for everyday wear

Today, my sweet friend Brooke's oldest daughter got married! It was a gorgeous barn wedding. It was fun to share this day with Brooke and Dorie. Brooke and I made these Upton Dresses by Cashmerette. These sewing buddies are amazing ladies!

Making a new #uptondress - this is in 98% wool/2% Lycra from @wearethefabricstore .
I was good and washed a swatch to test shrinkage, and it didn't seem to shrink that much, but I'm not sure if ironing it has made a big difference. In any event, I added an extra inch to the hem in case it gets shorter.
This #uptondress was actually for my brother’s wedding rehearsal a year ago! Now it’s one of my favorite day dresses, since I had the foresight to add slash pockets. Even better, my mom found this fabric for me when I bemoaned the death of my favorite black and white stretch cotton floral dress. #sewcialistslovemmmay#mmmay18#momsstashfabric @cashmerette #addallthepockets
Finished this @cashmerette Upton Dress tonight, and I totally know what I’m wearing to work tomorrow!!! My love affair with this pattern continues, and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon 😍😍
I did a photo-along in my stories while I made this one, and have saved them all as a highlight if you’re keen to check it out.
Babar fabric from @hawthornethreads but I think bought the last of it, sorry 🙊
