Time to Sew:
About 5 or 6 hours
Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
About a 3, nothing hard about it.
Knit Wrap dress, View B
I used a very stretchy knit so I cut a size 10 for the bust and graded up to a size 12 for the waist and hips.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a wrap dress! I could own hundreds and be happy. I'm not a fan of pleats but I could live with the one's in this dress.
Very stretchy rayon knit. I fell immediately in love with it at the fabric store!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added about 3" I believe to the length. I did my usual short back length alteration by taking out 1" in center back bodice and grading to nothing at side seams. I sewed the pleats at the seam allowance edge but didn't sew any of them down. I also used my coverstitch machine to hem my skirt and dress neck/front edge. To stabilize the neck/front edge I used seams great in the seam allowance to inhibit stretching.
What would you do differently next time?:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
This can be worn with a cardigan or jacket, bare legged with pumps or with tights and boots:)
Cute wrap dress!
