Sew Twists and Ties: Cashmerette Giveaway

The second Sew Twists and Ties giveaway, this time from Cashmerette!


Jenny of Cashmerette generously provided two PDF patterns for this Sew Twist and Ties giveaway. Two of her classy, curve-friendly (size 12-28 and bust sizes C-H) patterns are just perfect for the challenge!



The Cedar Dolman Top is part of the Cashmerette activewear collection, but this knotted (or not!) dolman top is also a lovely top if made in non-athletic fabrics like rayon challis and the like. Read about my sporty Cedar Dolman here and have a peek below.



The Pembroke Dress and Tunic is a new favorite among favorites for me.. this cute tie waist (or not!) dress or tunic manages to be both comfy and chic! My green tie-waist Pembroke dress is sure to be a favorite come spring.


Thanks to Cashmerette for the great giveaway!

Enter below using the Rafflecopter link to win copies of the Cedar and Pembroke PDF patterns!

UPDATE: This giveaway has closed and the winner has been contacted. Thank you for entering!

  3. Both patterns look like they could be TNT's and sewn up in many different colours and prints, just like some other Cashmerette patterns that I've made multiple times!

  7. I am longing to try one of Cashmerette's patterns - any of them to be honest, though the Pembroke & Harrison lead the pack slightly. They are, unfortunately, rather pricey when filtered through the exchange rate. One day, though ......

  17. Love Cashmerette patterns (I use 14 GH). I have 5 patterns now. I've made several Rivermont dresses and tops, and one Lennox top. I need to make the Ipswitch soon because I need a new bathing suit, and also need to sew the Appleton so I have a wrap dress I can wear.

  25. Love their Springfield Top pattern, such a relief for a pattern to fit with no adjustments ��

    ReplyDelete
  26. I was just about to make up the Rivermont, I'm new to dresses usually preferring to wear separates. Maybe the Pembroke would be a better choice to ease me out of my comfort zone.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I have sewn several Cashmerette patterns and would love to try the Pembroke Dress. The Kielo has been on my list for a while but it would be nice to sew something I know I won't have may fitting issues with.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I haven't tried a Cashmerette pattern yet, but would love to, especially if I get lucky ;)

  29. I've already ordered fabric (co-ordinating stripe and solid from the Fabric Snob) for the Pembroke dress, but haven't got the pattern yet.

  50. I have tried the appleton (Love!) the concord tee and the turner dress. I have several other patterns by them and will probably do the montrose or springfield top next

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love all the Cashmerette patterns I've made so far: the Upton dress, Turner dress, Belmont leggings and several Concord t-shirts! It's amazing how well they fit with no adjustments. Because I'm just below their size range, I usually grade one size smaller to a 10EF, which is still worth it for the great fit!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Meg, I'm loving your twist and tie inspiration. I usually omit these details on garments and go for a simplified version. I've tried Cashmerette patterns in the past, but would love to try the Pembroke dress. I've seen so many great versions, and agree, it would be great come spring. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I love both patterns, and the Pembroke looks like an especially useful pattern for a work wardrobe staple
