Cashmerette Club: Meet the Patterns

At Cashmerette we wholeheartedly believe that you deserve the well-fitting wardrobe of your dreams, and you’re just the person to make it. That’s why we created Cashmerette Club.

Cashmerette Club is a monthly, members-only, online sewing club. Every month, members receive a new PDF sewing pattern in sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H, as well as a variety of other goodies: an exclusive fitting masterclass taught by Jenny, access to a live virtual event, a discount to the Cashmerette shop, and more.

We’ve rounded up all of the club patterns that we’ve released so far as of June 2023. Sit back and relax as we showcase each of these exclusive patterns to get you inspired!

Kimball Bomber Jacket

The Kimball Bomber Jacket kicked off the Cashmerette Club and is created especially for curves. This classic bomber jacket  features thoughtfully placed bust darts with and has a slightly relaxed fit through the shoulders and back so you get the classic bomber jacket look, but is neat through the bust and shoulders so you’re not overwhelmed with fabric.

Other features of the Kimball Bomber Jacket include awesome quilted sleeves (fabulous in a contrasting fabric!), a clean-finish faced zipper, and handy angled zipper pockets.

Here’s what Club member Chantal had to say about the Kimball:

“The jacket pattern I didn’t know I needed! This is the pattern that tempted me to sign up to the club, and I’m so glad I did! I hadn’t really thought of making a bomber jacket, I think I’d just assumed it wouldn’t work for my shape, but the models all looked so great so I gave it a go. I used a sequined fabric, and lengthened it an inch as I’m 5’10”, and it fits amazingly. I get compliments whenever I wear it!”

Carlyle T-Shirt

The Carlyle is an elevated t-shirt with a beautifully mitered square neckband and puffy or straight sleeves, and the fit you know and love in our popular Concord T-Shirt. This pattern comes in sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H and best of all, it pairs with our popular versatile Concord for over 80 different t-shirt combinations!

Sandy had this to say about her Carlyle T-Shirt:

“What an amazing top. I love everything about it, from the gorgeous square neck to the perfect fit which I have come to expect from all Cashmerette patterns. I made the short, regular sleeve. My next make will be with the long puffed sleeve.”

Gilmore Skirt

The Gilmore Skirt is a vintage-inspired circle skirt pattern. The Gilmore Skirt sewing pattern is a 3-paneled circle skirt with a contoured waistband and back zip, or mix and match it with the Upton bodice for more style options!

Anni shared this about her Gilmore Skirt:

“Well-detailed instructions as always and a beautiful skirt! I love that it can be combined with Upton dress top!”

Alton Blouse

The curve-friendly boho inspired Alton Blouse includes amazing pleated sleeves, elastic cuffs, and a keyhole neckline. Mix and match the Alton with the Montrose Top for additional options.

Kimberly had this to say about her Alton Blouse:

“I’m in love! Ok it may not be reasonable to be so excited about a pattern but this one does it!
I’ve made one Alton and know it will not be the last. It is such a simple design but it will be s-o-o-o-o-o hack in the future. I love that if I have a great piece of fabric this pattern will be a good choice to show case it. I have already used the sleeve from the Montrose and it worked beautifully. This would be a great pattern for a beginner. Especially since so much of the fit issues are taken care of with the sizing. Keep the patterns coming!!!!!!”

Kineton Dress + Top Variation

The Kineton Dress is a particular favorite of Club members! The Kineton is an easy breezy lightweight woven dress with an elasticated waist and fun wrist flounces. It features a V neckline designed for a full bust and an elasticated waist, plus two sleeve options and of course, pockets. This pattern comes in sizes 0-32, cup sizes C-H.

And get even more out of your Kineton Dress with the Kineton Top variation! The Kineton Top is a trendy crop top with an elasticated waist and your choice of short puff sleeves or long sleeves with a wrist flounce.

Here’s what Club member Diane had to say about the Kineton:

“Quick and easy summer make! I needed something quick to add to a holiday weekend and this fit the bill perfectly! I used cotton from my stash and it’s a perfect summertime easy make. I will be making more!”

Wexford Top & Dress

The Wexford Top and Dress pattern is a swing-style top and dress with a roomy fit in the waist and hips, the Wexford features a scoop neck and includes three sleeve lengths (short, mid, or long) plus a sleeveless option with banded armholes.

Club member Lianne had this to say about her Wexford Top and Dress:

“It’s no secret that I love Cashmerette patterns and the great sizing calculator. When the Wexford dress and top was released, it ticked all the boxes for a great sleeveless summer dress and I printed it and picked a great cotton lycra fabric, and made it up. The Wexford dress didn’t disappoint. It fits nicely around the bust and armholes and flares wonderfully before the tummy begins. My wonderful summer Wexford dress was in constant rotation and it never failed to bring compliments. Everyone asked, “where did you get that cute dress?” I’m working on a sleeved version for winter. If you haven’t made one, get out the pattern and get started, it’s a winner.”

Radcliffe Undies

The Radcliffe is a cute and comfortable underwear pattern with seamless sides, optional paneling, and multiple rise heights. And with multiple leg and waist finish options, you can craft your perfect pair of undies from over a dozen possible combinations!

Here is Club member Sara’s take on the Radcliffe Undies:

“Good fit. I like this pattern—it sews up quickly and easily, the fit is very nice, and even though you won’t see a picture of me in them, they’re pretty!”

Stanton Hoodie + Expansion

The Stanton Hoodie is an athleisure piece that looks smart and feels great, because it’s custom-fitted to your body, with cup sizes from C – H. It features a pullover and a zip-up version, and both have a curved yoke at the shoulder with the great fit of a set-in sleeve. The roomy pockets let you leave your purse at home and run free. Get playful with color-blocking or go monochrome for a chic look.

You can get even more from your Stanton with the Stanton Hoodie Expansion Pack and turn your Stanton into a half zip sweatshirt or a cozy sweater dress.

Kate shared this about her Stanton Hoodie:

“Brilliant pattern, many more will follow! I have at last found time + the perfect fabric to make my first Stanton Hoodie with the expansion pack neckline and it is love at first wear. In fact even trying it on during the making process I could already tell how much I was going to love this pattern.

I finished it yesterday and can’t wait to wear it. The drafting, fit across the bust, great shaping (no boxy, oversized, shapeless-ness going on here) and excellent instructions all mark this pattern out as another cracker from Cashmerette.”

Lygon Robe

A bust-friendly take on the classic robe, the Lygon Robe features sophisticated French darts and a neckband, cuffs, belt, and patch pockets embellished with channel stitching. This robe is as stylish as it is comfortable.

Here’s what Club member Stefanie had to say about her Lygon Robe:

“Makes me feel fancy! I love this robe so much. Even though I made it out of flannel, somehow I feel so much more dressed up wearing it. Maybe it’s the fit, so much more like a real garment than a robe from a big, box store. It was simple to construct and the channel stitching makes the neckline lay beautifully against my neck. Plus the side slits make it easy to move around in, without feeling too tight around the legs.”

Caroll Shrug

Sew a vintage-style cover-up with the Caroll Shrug! The Caroll is inspired by the groundbreaking creations of fashion designer Claire McCardell in the late 1940s. The Caroll is a simple, bias cut cover-up that can be sewn in just about any fabric—woven or knit. The Caroll is designed to pair with the Rockwell Dress, but looks fabulous over any dress or top.

The Caroll Shrug was created in collaboration with fashion historian Julie Eilber.

Jasmine shared this about her Caroll Shrug:

“I’ve made two shurgs. They are quick and easy to make. My first I used elastic on the sleeve, it is a wearable toile. The second I did as the pattern intended. I would like to make a black or navy one in the future.”

Rockwell Dress

The Rockwell is a glamorous (yet surprisingly easy to sew) 1940s style gown that can look high fashion or everyday casual depending the fabric and styling. It is a woven dress with a tightly gathered neckline with front tie and slit and is gathered under the bust with a waist tie that wraps around the torso, and of course, pockets. The dress can be made in either a midi or maxi length.

Club member Larissa loves her Rockwell. Here’s why:

“In love. It took me a long time to decide on the purchase because I’m a Brazilian woman. This means that, generally, the patterns designed by non-Latin companies do not always look good on my body (not without many, many adjustments) which is very similar to the stereotype of the Latin woman, small waist in relation to the hip, large breasts, big arse. After MANY patterns of other brands – which I have always had to adjust a lot – behold not only this, but ALL the patterns of Cashmerette are perfect, almost without any adjustment. I was seduced by the Rockwell dress (so glamorous), but today I’m a fan of Cashmerette. It is wonderful the respectful attitude of the company towards all types of bodies. But in practical terms: very well constructed pattern, I make them without major adjustments, the PDF printing options are wonderful (print only the parts we will use and not all sheets), clear instructions, didactic videos. As I said, it’s a case of passion :)”

Avola Slip Dress & Top

Slip on the Avola Slip Dress & Top anytime–day or night! With bust darts and a center back seam for shaping through the bust and waist plus two strap options, the Avola is sure to fill all manner of gaps in your wardrobe (without any gaping). Make a slinky slip, a strappy dress, a traditional camisole, a casual tank, or a sophisticated nightgown–all with this single pattern.

Donna had this to say about her Avola Slip Dress & Top:

“Excellent pattern per usual! The Avola top is a dream come true for full figured body types that want a stylish cami type top for wearing on it’s own or layered under jackets. And great coverage so no bra straps peeking out. Excellent fit as always… Cashmerette’s size calculator on their site is so great!”

Ashwood Pants

The Ashwood Pants are elegant ponte pants with stylish princess seams and optional front slits, and of course, pockets. The Ashwoods are fitted through the waist and hips and flare below the knees, with a yoga-style waistband for the ultimate in waist comfort.

Carolyn had this to say about her Ashwood Pants:

“Great pattern, comfortable and classic. I’ve made two pairs of these Ashwood. One with the full wide leg, the other more of a boot cut. I love them both. They are my go to for comfort and style. They can be worn casual or the black pair I’ve worn out to a more dressed up dinner. Such a good pattern.”

Murcot Puffer Vest

The Murcot Puffer Vest is a fully lined puffer vest sewing pattern with bust-friendly princess seams, a cozy inner batting layer, standing collar, and optional puffy welt pockets. Included in the pattern are two quilting templates, or get creative and design your own.

Here’s what Club member Stephanie had to say about her Murcot Puffer Vest:

“This is the perfect laying piece! I have wanted a puffer vest for a long time, but I was so afraid that it would make me look like a little pincushion. The Murcot absolutely does not. It has just enough room to close comfortably, but I think the gathered shoulder enhances the fit so much be a use it doesn’t stick out.

It feels light and easy, and just warm enough for the late winter/early spring weather.

The pockets are so deep and the welt reinforces them so they don’t feel the least bit flimsy. I don’t usually carry a bag, so pocket size is important to me, and I can keep my phone and keys and sunglasses and hands inside very comfortably.
I love learning new skills, and this vest had a couple. I had never done this type of quilting before, and the sewalong really helped me to see how things needed to go together. I even took the plunge to learn installing four-part snaps, so worth it!

I cannot say enough how much I loved this vest.”

Elmwood Skirt

The Elmwood Skirt is a sleek woven (or stretch woven) pencil skirt designed for curves with hip-hugging side seams, back darts, and a curved waistband. With two hem lengths and optional pockets, your pencil skirt dreams are finally coming true.

Dottie shared this about her Elmwood Skirt:

“I wear skirts frequently and was very excited to receive this pattern as part of my club membership. I had a fabric in my stash and a whole outfit in my mind. I was a little intimidated and worried that I would “mess it up” but it came out beautifully. Thank you for another wonderful skirt pattern, that I am sure to many more of.”

Brattle Top

Add a twist to your tee collection with the Brattle Top! The Brattle is a curve-friendly t-shirt with a faced neckline and an inventive twist that adds visual interest to your t-shirt collection without adding bulk. Opt for the Brattle’s short sleeves, or swap in any of the sleeves from the Concord T-Shirt or Carlyle T-Shirt patterns for even more possibilities!

Delores had this to say about her Brattle Top:

“My new favorite top! The Brattle is easy to construct and it’s very flattering to wear! I love the simplicity of making the neck facing. I’m ready to make more using different sleeve styles and maybe even a square neck.”

Hampden Dress

The Hampden Dress is a breezy woven dress guaranteed gape-free thanks to a clever faux button placket and a pullover design with a comfortable elastic back waistband. And to help you get even more out of your pattern collection, we’ve also designed the Hampden to mix and match with our popular Holyoke Maxi Dress & Skirt.

Club member Allison had to say about her Hampden:
“It is so lovely to be able to wear a sundress that fits my curves perfectly, still allows me to wear a bra but is also cool in the hot weather. Being able to mix and match with the Holyoke dress allows you to make many different styles of dress.”

Selwyn Top

The Selwyn Top is a woven blouse designed for a gape-free fit for curves and features shoulder princess seams and stylish pintucks, plus an optional over-the-shoulder ruffle that forms a small cap sleeve. Want even more sleeve options? You can mix and match the Selwyn with the Vernon Shirt’s two sleeve options and top it off with the Vernon’s chic covered button placket.

Club member Amanda loves her Selwyn. Here’s why:

“It was fun (and easy thanks to the detailed instructions) learning how to sew pintucks. Combine those with the ruffle sleeves and what could be a regular button-up is elevated to something sassy!”

    Is this offer for 6 months or 1 year?

    1. Ayelet says:

      This offer is for the All Access membership, which is paid annually (so for a full year). Additionally, you ‘lock in’ the special pricing, so you pay that same price for as long as you’re a member.

  2. Betty Parrott says:

    I would love to do all access, but my fixed income prohibits me from many things, especially with the price increases of even a dozen eggs!! You are very fair in your prices. I thought I read that the stanton hoodie was a free pattern to those who joined the club, but now i can’t find that statement. Is it true that a free Stanton Hoodie is part of joining?

    1. Ayelet says:

      Hi Betty, yes you also get the Stanton Hoodie PDF pattern free with an All Access membership.

    Thinking about joining the club. The All Access said it gives access to all previous club patterns. Is there a list somewhere of which patterns are from the club? Thanks
