Ultimate Wrap Dress
It was very easy to put together, and being able to just press ‘start’ on a sewing machine and let it sew with a little steering from me was a pleasant surprise.
The finished dress was much shorter than I anticipated, so it’s ended up being a tunic dress (to be worn with leggings). I was quite surprised by this, as I’m only 5’10”.
Plus the tie strap hole is a little too high and doesn’t sit on my waist. But I absolutely love how this fabric looks. I may have to buy some more, especially as it comes in different colours!
So I am going to buy some more jersey and try again. Next time I will:
- Adjust the front slope so it ends on my waist, then the straps will be at the right point.
- Add a couple of darts in the back, so the front comes up a bit higher. This will also pull the shoulders seams up slightly, so it will sit better.
- Add about 4″ to the bottom, so it hopefully hits my knee.
