Pop the champagne: it’s an Appleton Dress Party!

These last few weeks sewing along with you all have been a blast, and it has been such a delight to see all of your amazing Appleton Dresses! I love seeing the variety and personal style reflected in all of your work. Check out this bushel of Appletons (see what I did there?!) and see who won 3 yards of jersey of their choice from Emma One Sock at the end of the post!

    Everyone looks fantastic in their Appletons! I’ll be sewing my first one this weekend, hopefully to wear to an event next week. So excited!

    1. Super, I hope you love it!

  6. T says:

    They all look fantastic and now I have some brilliant new blogs to follow too! 😉

    1. Yay curvy lady blogs!

  7. #lovealltheappletons!!!! seriously, all you ladies have made fabulous versions!

  8. Carol says:

    I like the dress, but the neckline is way too low for me. I know that if I made it, I’d never wear it. Is there an easy way to make it higher?

    1. Hi Carol – wrap dresses are by their nature low cut so unless you want to wear it with a camisole you are probably better off trying a different style of dress

  9. Woot! So many pretty ladies and now I’m off to stalk a few fabric selections too!

  10. Love this bushel it’s full of love and beauty, covered at the moment from the terror happening in Paris…………..

  11. I loved seeing all these gorgeous gals in their Appletons! I made my first one in black, but I have a black and tan oversized houndstooth knit for my second one; I think it’s going to be gorgeous with a high heeled oxford pump! I’ll feel so wonderfully like a sexy nerd;)

  12. They all look beautiful. Great work ladies.

  13. Meg says:

    Everybody looks fantastic!! Can’t wait to get started on a second Appleton!

  14. Did I miss something? Where is my dress??

    1. Hi Rachelle – to enter the contest, you needed to either use the hashtag on social media, or email us – did you do either of those? Sorry if we missed that!

  15. LaNell says:

    Wow! Everyone not only has made such beautiful dresses, they are some very beautiful models! I can’t wait to make one

Let me know what you think!
