I'd like to find a pattern for a wrap dress with an elastic waist like this, so it could be fastened with a hook and eye and doesn't necessarily require ties at the waist. Any ideas?

View B of Butterick 5744 could be useful, but you would have to add sleeves.

Thanks! That's a really nice dress, but it's a faux wrap and I really want to be able to close it with a snap or hook and eye.

I think you would be able to change view B to a wrap pretty easily. It would just be a change in construction and not pattern pieces (at least major ones; if it uses a casing for the elastic you'll have to extend it).

The new Vogue 1258 is a real wrap dress with a hook-and-eye closure, but no elasticized waist.

Thanks! The Vogue dress really has potential ! (Without the flounce ).

I think that Style Arc has a wrap dress that's a real wrap.
