Your Club Makes: Four Dazzling Deweys

Get ready to dazzle in this month’s Cashmerette Club pattern, the Dewey Dress! We tasked four makers in our community to craft their very own Deweys just in time for holiday party season. Follow along for plenty of party dress inspiration!

The Dewey Dress features an asymmetrical neckline, eye-catching shoulder pleats, and a midi-length tulip skirt with a pleated overlay. Glam it up in stretch velvet or metallic lamé, or keep it simple in a jersey knit. And best of all, you can mix and match the Dewey’s bodice and skirt with the Grafton Dress, Top & Skirt Mix & Match Pack to create over 60 additional looks!

The Dewey comes in sizes 0-32 and cup sizes C-H and is available exclusively to Cashmerette Club members. Not a member yet? Join today for as little as $9 (cancel anytime).

Now let’s peruse all of these stunning party dresses, shall we?

Lise’s Dewey Dress

Lise is holiday party-ready in her fabulously festive red stretch velvet Dewey! She made hers in a size 12 G/H graded to a 16 at the waist and hips. She also lengthened the bodice by 2 inches and shortened the skirt by 4 inches. Glammed up with a black belt, black stockings and heels, she’s sure to make an entrance at any occasion.

Her measurements are 38” high bust, 42” full bust, 36” waist, and 46” hips.

Here’s what Lise had to say about her Dewey Dress:

“It was an easy sew. The pattern suits this festive fabric well, and will be my Christmas dress.”

Tia’s Dewey Dress

A velvety delight is how we like to describe Tia’s Dewey Dress. Versatile, fashionable, and comfortable, Tia is happy with her Dewey and is looking forward to wearing it for a variety of occasions. She sewed hers in a size 26 C/D graded to a 30 at the waist and hip, and shortened the length of the skirt by about 3″. She chose a dramatic moss colored stretch velvet and used the Grafton relaxed fit bodice to put her own personal spin on it.

Her measurements are 50” high bust, 54” full bust, 50” waist, and 60” hips.

Tia shared this about her Dewey Dress:

“It was pretty straight forward, extremely comfortable. I want to wear it around the house doing chores.”

Angelee’s Dewey Dress

Angelee is a vision in blue in her sophisticated Dewey Dress. The asymmetrical neckline paired with the pleated overlay and the drape of the rayon jersey material will surely make this a party dress go-to for Angelee. She sewed hers in an 18 C/D.

Her measurements are 42” high bust, 44” full bust, 37” waist, and 47” hips.

Here’s what Angelee had to say about her Dewey Dress:

“The instructions were detailed and well written.”

Nicole’s Dewey Dress

Nicole’s suede Dewey Dress is giving us rich textured autumn vibes and we can’t get enough! Sewn in a size 14 E/F and graded to an 18 at the waist and hips, Nicole took her personalization one step further and sewed hers with sleeves from the Grafton. (The Grafton sleeves aren’t officially designed to be used on the Dewey’s sleeveless bodice, but if you’re up for a little hacking challenge, you can make it work!)

Her measurements are 38” high bust, 42” full bust, 38” waist, and 46” hips.

Nicole shared this about her Dewey Dress:

“I love the Dewey Dress. It is so my style of autumn dress. The instructions were very clear, and the lined bodice is very beautiful. The pleats are gorgeous and the length is perfect for me. I used the sleeves from the Grafton and lowered the armscye by 1 inch. I feel very classy and chic in the dress.”

    I have downloaded the Dewey. What pattern would give me some sleeve options? I really like the butterfly sleeve.

      Hi Jo Anne, you could try using the sleeves from the Grafton like Nicole did in this blog post, but it’s not exactly designed to be used in that way, so it would require adjusting the armscye a bit.

      Or you could use the skirt from the Dewey with any of the bodices and sleeves from the Grafton.
