Wellington, New ...
I made this wrap dress about a month ago and just haven’t had a chance to photograph it, mainly because I love it so much that I’ve worn it at least once a week to work. Unfortunately summer is well on the way out here in Western Australia so it’s back in to the wardrobe so that I can rediscover it next summer. This is a great pattern, super comfy and I love the pleat details at the waist and shoulders. I haven’t sewn a Butterick pattern before and according to the size chart I am a 16, I’ve been warned that Butterick runs large so I cut a 14 (the largest size from my pattern) and I still think it’s at least one size too big. Not sure if it’s just the Simplicity sizing or a combination of the wrap style and stretchy fabric but one of the front side pleats is well under the wrap front and I don’t think that’s how it’s supposed to sit. Anyway, I loved the fabric and will probably make another (in a smaller size) with the 3/4 sleeve, maybe in a more wintery type print to wear with tights.
