Has anyone see one?? Or even a mock wrap? My daughter (12) is asking me to make one for her and I can't find a pattern.

How big is your dd? You may be able to use a small misses dress pattern for her?

I know when I was 12 my mum started to use misses patterns for me. I remember a beautiful red wrap dress she made for me back in 1980 or so. It had a wrap skirt and a halter type top.

KS 3489 or KS 3408 sorry using a differnt computer and I cannot seem to post images. These are both Kwiksew patterns for knit wrap dresses in misses sizing.

Kwiksew measurement chart.

My dd is almost 10 and her measurements are close to an extra small misses. I would have to adjust for height, but not much else.

Could you morph the Jalie wrap top w/ a skirt? Seems a mock wrap might be better anyway, considering how tricky it is to keep a true wrap from flying open all the time...probably not a problem you want w/ a 12 year old.

Abacadabra just came out with one (#75)very recently, if instructions aren't a must for you. It goes up to sz 152 so definitely big enough for her. I have it but haven't sewn it up yet, I was really attracted to the "grown up" look of it and the options in it. I know it can be found at www.buntefabrics.com and I think www.banberryplace.com has it too (NAYY with both).

You could take any dress pattern that fits well and draft a wrap neckline. As long as you don't make it too low cut, you won't have a gapping problem.

I drafted a wrap dress for toddlers last year, and made dresses to sell on eBay. They sold pretty well, and I had countless requests to buy the pattern. I told people that I was in the business of selling dresses, not patterns to my own competitors, LOL!

That's when I did a search and discovered that there really are no wrap patterns for children, so I sympathize.

But really, you can draft the neckline with just a hip curve. I've done it in both knit and woven.
