A sweet and easy wrap dress with no closures to sew. The dress wraps in back and has cap sleeves. The wide ties encircle the waist for a comfortable dress with a fitted look. Version 1 has a rounded neckline, while Version 2 has a shaped sweetheart neckline and waist ties in a contrasting fabric. Pattern Sizing:
0-18 Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes! Were the instructions easy to follow?
Colette Patterns are always easy to follow. I love them! What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like how easy it was to put together. Fabric Used:
Amy Butler Queen Ann's Butterflies in Topaz and a solid pink I had in my stash. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added a lining instead of using the sleeve facings. I read other reviews that complained about the sleeve facings popping out so I followed their advice about a lining. My bodice lining is not perfect and was the hardest part of this dress since I had never lined a bodice before. So that part was a little trial and error. I should have done a little more fitting to the bodice. I'm still new at this and have a difficult time fitting myself and knowing what alterations to make which is why the bodice is too big in the back. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would sew it again! I would use a lighter weight fabric though, the cotton is a little stiff. Conclusion:
Easy dress to make and wear!
