Updated wrap dress section

Hello dear ones!

As regular readers will be undoubtedly aware, I wear and make a lot of wrap dresses. Like, really, a lot.

Tips to make your own wrap dress! Cashmerette

In order to spread my wrappy love with the world, I’ve started up a new section of the blog: Wrap Dress Central. I’ll be updating it with all my latest finds and tips for perfecting your own wrap dress, and indeed I just added a few more tricks on finishing necklines and where to find great printed jersey (aka The Holy Grail). And also some words of warning…. (intriguing, no?).

In the meantime I have a few wrappy projects in the pipeline so watch this space! Or rather, that space.

Let me know if you have any particular wrap dress questions, and I’ll try to answer them too!

    Great idea! I actually have two wrap dresses planned, one woven, and one jersey. I am looking forward to your holy grail of jersey resource 🙂

    I had to take it in a bit on the sides from bust to waist, because I lost some weight. It is such a simple design ANYONE who sews could easily sew an inch on each side to alter it (that is what I did).

    Oooh, this sounds great!! I’ve been trying to draft myself a full skirted woven wrap dress with a collar, and cannot for the life of me find how to do that.

    (Sort of a lennox/appleton mashup) Looking at the updated Lennox, I think I might actually be able to extend the front parts to be a wrap, with little holes in the side and everything, and plenty of skirt fullness.

    Do you think it could be done?



    1. It would definitely be a big project, but theoretically possible!

    I would love to find a wrap dress pattern for wovens (no collar, just a simple wrap top) that ties in the (high) waist, has enough bust room but is fitted through the waist, and preferably has a wrap version of a circle skirt since I’m not a fan of pleated or gathered skirts (or anything else that adds bulk to my waist). Oh and a cap sleeve to elbow length sleeve would be ideal – no voluminous sleeves, since my internal thermostat is deficient and I spend a large portion of my day putting on and taking off cardigans…

    Does such a unicorn pattern exist? (And if not, could you PLEASE develop it for us, Jenny? 😉)

Let me know what you think!
