Faux wrap dress made in a silky jersey knit. This dress was quite easy to sew and fit although I did make a couple of errors. Fortunately the pattern design on this fabric is very forgiving and you won’t notice that I made the faux wrap belt around the wrong way. The photos don’t really show the pleating detail below the bust at the front but these pleats are a lovely feature. I highly recommend this dress as I think it will suit all figure shapes. I omitted the side zip as the dress slips on easily without the need to open it up.
