From Cashmerette Patterns:

From hot summer days to cold winter nights, the Wexford Top & Dress is the pattern you’ll want by your side! 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. Sew yours up in a lightweight jersey to beat the summer heat or in a sweater knit to stay warm and cozy in fall and winter.

This pattern is available to active Cashmerette Club members only. This is the PDF pattern for July 2022 and includes sizes 0-32. Not a Club member? Join today.

Pattern features:

  • 3 sleeve lengths (short, mid, and long) plus a sleeveless option
  • Two hem lengths (top that hits at mid hip or a below-the-knee dress) that mix and match with any sleeve option
  • Cup sizes C-H
  • Banded scoop neck and banded armholes for sleeveless view
  • Roomy fit in the waist and hips, which means less grading necessary
  • Beginner-friendly and quick construction—whip one up in no time!

Recommended Fabrics: Sew up your Wexford in a light to mid-weight knit fabric such as rayon, cotton/lycra or poly/lycra jersey, rib knits or ITY with at least 30% crosswise stretch. The Wexford works great in all seasons—it all depends on the sleeve option you choose and the fabric you pair it with.

Sizes: 0-16 and 12-32, in three cup sizes (C/D, E/F, G/H). See Sizing Guide.
Separate files for both size ranges are included.
