In my first attempt at making a wrap dress, I used McCall’s 5314. I made a few petite alterations and achieved a rather nice fit. Hemming the circle skirt, however, is still not on my list of mastered skills! I also made a coordinating suede bag. More discussion, details, and photos on my blog: Style Me Mary
For the dress, I used a lightweight, woven polyester. Next time, I’d like to try a silk jersey for that Diane von Furstenberg look.
For the bag, I used a durable faux suede embellished with African lace. The shoulder strap is adorned with large ceramic beads.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
