If there’s one thing that brings a smile to my face, it’s seeing women around the world wearing their Cashmerette Patterns garments – and it’s been doubly fun seeing all your creative and beautiful makes for the holidays!
Let’s kick it off with three gorgeous Upton dresses: Tanya in lovely sateen, Pearl used a border print to absolutely wonderful effect, and Sumiko used metallic Cotton+Steel cotton to make a fabulous maxi version.
Next up, the Turner Dresses. Andie whipped hers up in an hour (!!!!) for Xmas lunch, adapting it by using a scoop neckline and neckband (want to alter your Turner neckline? Here’s a tutorial). Laura used a stretch burgundy velvet to make a super festive dress, and Kenna hacked hers to make a cross-over bodice.
Hannah made not one, not two, but three Cashmerette dresses for the holidays! Here’s her burgundy Turner Dress. Laura made a beautiful purple Upton dress, which goes fantastically with her cardi. And Margo made this novelty Christmas Harrison Shirt to entertain her grandkids – and reports back that it did!
Here’s another one of Hannah’s lovely makes – it’s an Appleton Dress, and it’s actually her first ever hand-made dress, if you can believe it! Mary Alice wore her maxified Appleton and is looking gorgeous as always. And Katie made a really creative Concord T-shirt hack for a totally different look – so clever!
And finally, I wore Cashmerette too. My black polka dot Turner Dress, which is probably my favourite thing I made all year. We still also have a handful of kits left, if you’re interested in making your own.
Happy holidays from Cashmerette Towers! Did you wear Cashmerette for the holidays? I’d love to see what you made.
