|Pattern Description: This is a vintage wrap dress pattern that is made up of a front piece and a back piece. The front is wraped and tied at the back and the back overlaps the front and is tied.|
This patter has now been re released in the summer 2014 release under pattern number 1356. Click Here
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes, apart from my small alteration, more later.
Were the instructions easy to follow?There is really nothing to this pattern but the instructions were detailed and well written.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked that it went together very well and was an easy gratifying project. I was doing exams at the time so just picked it up for a few minutes here and there as relax time.
Fabric Used: This dress is reversable so one side is a quilting cotton and the other side is a lightweight poplin.This is the reverse side
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I made this straight out of the envelope as the only fitting is a french dart. After completion The front neck gaped a bit and will need some contouring so as a fix to this version I put in three little tucks. I quite like how this modernised the dress so I'm not sure if I will do this next time or if I will contour it. Here is a close up of the tucks The pattern calls for ribbon to tie at the back but I used self fabric.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will make this again once I come across two co-ordinating fabrics that will work.
Conclusion: A great dress for lazy summer Sundays that is easy to make and easy to wear. I also think this would work well for a travel wardrobe.
Here is a photo of how it ties at the back
