It’s A Wrap – Sew Stretchy

Can you believe this dress has 122 reviewers on Pattern Review and it has just been gathering dust in my sewing room for the past year?  I was on the wrap dress fence…..not sure if it would work for my body type.  I finally caved because how could 122 people be wrong? They were not…..I love this dress!

I used a jersey knit fabric from my stash.  I have really been stash busting lately!  I am thankfully it has a nice busy print because I did have a few issues with the neckline.  I think the pattern just left the edge open with a tacking at the shoulder seam and a under-stitch.  If I read that correctly, it didn’t work for me.  The facing kept wanting to show itself off.  I finally stitched it down about 1 1/2 inches in on both the top and the skirt. This worked wonderfully and the seams is pretty hidden in the print.  Next time, I will read the directions much slower and see if I completely misread them.

Anyway, I am a huge fan of the pattern and will be making a winter version soon!  Check out my blog for more info.
