Description

I made this silk wrap dress using Cynthia Rowley’s Simplicity 1872 for the bodice and a simple gathered rectangle for the skirt. I amended the Simplicity pattern somewhat by cutting an inch from the front wrap to show a little cleavage (I made another version and it was too modest for my liking). I also added an elastic to the waist to give it a little more shape. You can read about it on my blargh
