I sew my first 40’s style wrap dress.
It is simple pattern, with single button on the neck line holding two upper back sides on the place.
I take a basic shirt pattern for upper part ( http://www.burdastyle.de/burda-style/damen/bluse-blusen_pid_185_2019.html ) and A-line skirt pattern for lover part.
Cut upper front part without buttoning, back part with lap on both sides. Lower back part (skirt) cut 2x for lap.
cotton print, 1 button
