Simple Wrap Dress

This is a simple wrap dress made of 7 pieces — 2 fronts, 2 backs, 2 belts (side ties), 1 belt loop. It has all-in-one sleeves and a pleated collar that extends into the front neckline.

Material Notes

A while ago my daughter bought this jersey knit for a rainy day project. And, so this rainy, windy weekend I pulled out a pattern (Butterick 5101) and got started. Even though it’s the second time using the pattern, I got stumped on the belt attachment. And, when I lengthened the dress when cutting out the front & back pieces, the hem in the fully assembled dress was wonky! It was upsetting to get the whole dress together and be so dissatisfied with the final step.

    I love wrap dresses and this looks fantastic. Stretch material can be such a cow to work with… I find it a struggle!!

      thanks! … no clue where the fabric design comes from. It reminds me of coleus leaves — the fabric was probably in a mill end box in the garment district downtown
