It's a Wrap!...

At last!  A wrap dress cleverly constructed so it won't ever unwrap when you're walking past a windy building site!  Bodice top is made in a stretch fabric. Woven fabric skirt is sewn closed at the bottom and takes advantage of the vast array of prints available in non-stretch fabrics.

NB: Stitch seams at 1cm(3/8") unless otherwise specified.

RST=right sides together  WST=wrong sides together

Also, when sewing the stretch knit top of this dress use either

a) a 3 or 4 thread serger stitch

b) a narrow zigzag stitch

or c) if using a straight stitch, stretch fabric as you sew.

Pattern available soon!
