I attended a super special luncheon (more on that later) and needed a nice, effortless chic dress. You can't BEAT a wrap dress for such occassions. Wrap dresses are about to take over my wardrobe. They are fabulous, effortless, and they look amazing on me.
I went fabric shopping with my mom last month and when I saw this fabric I do believe I rolled around on the floor just giddy. I fell in love with it. I LOVE the super large houndstooth print and I love that it's not your "classic" houndstooth colors. The colors are great and perfect for fall.
For those of you who sew, here is a review:
Pattern Sizing: XS-XL I made the medium.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow? Kwik sew always has THE best directions. Their patterns are worth the directions alone. I did look over these for the sake of the review but I didn't need them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the style of this dress. I normally use Vogue 8379 when I want a wrap dress but I truly believe that one has been replaced.
Fabric Used: Matte Jersey
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the fabric ties wider. I didn't like the narrow ones.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes yes yes yes yes and yes. I am making this one again. And again. And, well you get the point. This pattern is OOP so if you can find it anywhere grab it.
Conclusion: Excellent pattern!
