Faux wrap maternity dress
8 to 24
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?
I really liked that this is not a true wrap, but a faux wrap. The front under layer is sewn into the side seam, so the skirt of the dress is completely modest and the skirt does not separate while sitting, walking, or outdoors in wind.
Fabric Used:ITY jersey from Gorgeous Fabrics
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added a little bit to the bodice, at the facing edges, to make it more modest so that DDIL could wear it to to work. I think she wears a camisole under it, anyway, to the office.
I wish I had done the band/facing of the neckline differently. I followed the pattern instructions, but the ITY was sort of thick by the time all the layers got sewn down.
BUT --- this pattern is drafted to be short in length. My DIL is only 5 ft tall, and it hits her right at the bottom of her kneecaps. If you are taller, I suggest lengthening the skirt part of the dress.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes, I would sew it again if she wanted another one.
I highly recommend it. This is a classic look and DDIL wears it to work.
Great pattern. Well drafted and instructions are satisfactory.
