Wrap Dress for my sis

Added Dec 29, 2008

by erdronen

Cincinnati, Ohio...






I made this dress for my sister for Christmas. I worked with her on what kind of fabric to use and what kind of dress she would like. She didn’t know my final choices though! I love it! I want to make another one for myself.

I used New Look 6674 as the base for this dress, but made some major changes! Also, I hardly used the pattern instructions at all because it was so easy!

To see my alterations and whatnot, check out my blog

Material Notes

The fabric is a very stretchy rayon/lycra jersey, very very similar to the one I used for my gray top. She loved that fabric, so I found the closest I could, although it’s darker (which I like).




Garment Type


My sister for helping me figure out what to make her and modeling for some lovely pictures :) She’s so pretty :)
