I’m completely new here, and pretty new to sewing, too, so I hope you can help me out.

I decided to make the wrap dress from the title (sorry, I and urls apparently don’t agree).

But after all the time spent for comprehending the instructions, I find myself asking the same thing one of the users already asked in reviews for this dress. Why cut out two rectangles that you’re going to sew together anyway if you actually have more than enough fabric to leave it in one piece? Can’t you just make the dress, with or without print on jersey, without cutting it in two?

The only reason I could possibly come up with was the draping of the fabric, but it’s a simple summer jersey dress, so it doesn’t sound like too much of a reason.
The question in reviews was never answered, so I’m posting it here. Sorry if the question sounds kinda stupid, but then I rather ask. :)

    Hi, It sounds like you could. Are the rectangles a perfect 90 degree angle? I wish I could see a picture. Could you post a picture of the tech drawing? Or give us a link to the pic?

      Hi! :)
      Yes, the rectangles are a perfect 90° angle.

      I have no idea how to link things or add images, unfortunately. However, the pattern and instructions for the dress I’m referring to are free, and found right away in the “Dresses” category if you filter search for “Novice” and “Free patterns.” There’s only one wrap dress. ;)

      Oh and, there’s no separate pattern and instruction files, just instructions, which include the pattern.

      If you could take a look, I’d be very grateful.

    Sometimes for smaller size the fabric width can accommodate the pattern piece without the seam, but not for larger size. The pattern is drawn for multiple sizes so it has to be designed to work for all sizes. If your fabric can accommodate the whole pattern piece without the center seam, then omit it.

    The B version looks different (more like a wrap/pareo style of dress) from the A version (which has O-rings to help create cleavage and back draping). But the technical drawings both show two rectangles joined together. So the front is open/sort of wraps closed. Perhaps the back seam is to add strength when sitting or standing in dress as the stress wrinkles could be more pronounced if the dress was made from one piece of fabric? Jersey is a knit-most knits tend to stretch out after many wearings. Is there mention of any tape applied to the back seam for stability in the pattern instructions? http://www.burdafashion.com/fr/Magazines/burda_Style/125_A_Robe_drapee_Schema_du_modele/1270777-1000019-1801726-1801729-1801825-1801842.html
