If you’re wondering in which aspects a rayon wrap dress can be considered as sporty, I totally understand. The thing is, if you knew me you would know that the closest I’ll ever get to practicing any kind of sports is wearing a dress with the bicycle print on it. And it’s not even a real sports bicycle, but this hipster velocipede thing. I guess that’s suitable, since I’m the kind of person who drops things and stumbles while standing still. Sad but true.
Dress is made with pattern #122 from Burda 02/2007 This pattern is pure gorgeousness and I couldn’t recommend it more! It has so many beautiful details and the shape is super flattering, I think this is the kind of dress that would look good on anyone. This is my first wrap dress ever, I don’t know why but I’ve always shied away from that shape. But not anymore, after this one all I wanna do is sew wrap dresses!
Due to darkness of my fabric (and also the busy nature of the print) some of the details are not as visible, but I included a technical drawing so you can see the design in its full glory :)
The fabric was selled as rayon, but I can tell there’s quite a bit of synthetic in it since it barely wrinkles at all. Which is ok. My friend Tea used this same fabric to sew a dress for her sister, you can see how cute her dress is here :)
