Wrap Dress 526

18.05

Wrap Dress: Self-lined bodice and side ties, cuffed sleeves and a graceful flared skirt.

This pattern takes us back and moves us forward at the same time. Diane von Furstenburg did it first with her wrap dress, which sold 5 million dresses. What an inspiration! My version of the wrap dress offers the same flattering lines, great fit and simple construction. Offering both a sleeveless and long sleeve version with a great flounce cuff.

The genius of this wrap dress is in the double-lined bodice. The double-lining eliminates the need for any hemming or facing on the wrap front, and also allows for a clean-finished sleeveless version as well. The bodice is sewn to the skirt panel for a clean inside finish, too. This makes for foolproof sewing of an often-tricky wrap neckline. Plus, our blog contains a “Raise the Wrap” instruction that shows you how to add more coverage across the bust with an easy pattern alteration.

Suggested Fabrics: Rayon/LYCRA® jersey blends, mattejersey. Knits with “snappy recovery”and drape are best. Knits with at least 50% stretch will fit best at bustline.

Modern yet classic in a wrap dress
Christine Jonson Patterns #526 (CJPatterns.com)

Dresses are still big on style, and this easy-fitting wrap dress with its graceful skirt is, like the Diane von Furstenberg originals, eternally chic and of the moment. Our tester found the V-neck flattering and slenderizing. The self-lined bodice gives the top added support and structure. The instructions are clear, well written, and come with a bonus-an additional guide sheet with hints on how to select size based on ease preference and what happens to fit when you use different weight and/or weave fabrics.
(Sized XS-XL [4-22] for busts 30.5-48 in. and hips 33-50 in.) *Fast and easy *For knits only
-Tested by Betty Brown, Culver City, California
Style Tip: Go with a graphic print for an authentic von Furstenberg look. She showed her wraps this season in oversize houndstooth prints, bright geometrics, and lumberjack plaids, to name a few.
