Squeezing in right before the end of Sew Stretchy month! (Although I figure it also counts for Indie Pattern Month too. 😉 )
The Coppelia cardi from Papercut has been appearing on here a bit lately, with some super cute versions like Elizabeth’s pink merino one. I totally understand why – it’s a fantastic pattern. Quick and easy to make, and very easy to wear. (I may have made a couple of them already – they are on high rotation in my wardrobe!)
The other day, I was thinking about wrap dresses, and realising that’s something you don’t tend to see in indie patterns. And then I thought to myself – what about the Coppelia? Could it be lengthened into a wrap dress?
So, I tried it.
And yes, it can indeed become a dress. Quite easily, in fact.
I made the ties longer than usual, so they can wrap around both front and back to give a bit of definition.
Added bonus – it’s nice and comfy to wear with a baby bump. 😉
I’m going to be putting a tutorial on how to lengthen the Coppelia up on my blog sometime in the next few days. In the meantime, there are some more photos and a few more details over in this post if you’re curious.
It’s nearly time for Indie Pattern Month to start! Yay!! 😀
