Cashmerette Sewing Pattern - Holyoke Maxi Dress & Skirt


Make your own dress or skirt for summer with this gorgeous pattern from Cashmerette.

Cashmerette design patterns exclusively for larger bodies, which means great coverage where you want it, flattering fit and also accommodating for larger bust sizes! Their patterns are designed for UK sizes 16-32 and cup sizes C-H to get a great fit.

This elegant dress and skirt combo are ideal for warmer weather. Made for lighter weight wovens, they are both sophisticated and comfy to wear at the same time, with their maxi lengths. The button down detailing adds a pretty touch of detailing, whilst the straps are bra-friendly and flattering. Best of all, both garments feature hidden pockets!

Fabric suggestions: Light- to mid-weight woven floaty fabrics such as rayon, cotton lawn or linen. Use drapey fabrics for a flowy look or firmer fabrics for a more structured style.

Additional supplies: universal needle, thread, lightweight fusible interfacing, 0.7m of 2cm wide elastic and 11x 1cm buttons.
