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.
