Cashmerette - Washington Dress


Mixing the comfort of a knit bodice with the fabric possibilities of a woven skirt the Washington Dress gives you the freedom to play with colors and textures for a look that is uniquely you.

Like all Cashmerette Patterns the bodice comes in three cup sizes (C/D E/F and G/H) which makes fitting a cinch! Style wise the Washington Dress gives you endless design options. The knit bodice features a figure-enhancing scoop neckline and three sleeve variations: short three-quarter or full length. The A-line skirt cleverly combines woven fabric with a heavy knit yoke eliminating the need for closures and allowing you to comfortably slip the dress over your head.

For additional tummy control the front yoke can be made from a woven fabric.

SEWING LEVEL: Advanced beginner.

SIZING: 12 to 28, in three cup sizes (C/D, E/F, G/H). The bodice of this dress is designed to be close fitting, so if you want a more skimming fit, we recommend going up a size in the bodice.


Bodice: Light to midweight knit fabric such as jersey or ITY with at least 50% crosswise stretch. 

Yoke: Heavy knit fabric such as ponte or scuba. For more support, make from a mid to heavyweight woven.

Skirt: Mid to heavyweight woven fabric, such as cotton, linen, canvas, or upholstery fabric.  

NOTIONS: Thread, ballpoint or stretch needle, universal needle, 1.5 yards (1.4 meters)  of clear 1/4 inch (6mm) elastic (optional).
