Description

Wrap dress made from a Butterick 5454 pattern. This is a nice alternative to the famous DVF wrap dress and I even recommend it to beginners who want to make something that is fairly easy to sew and wear with little or no adjustments. I stitched 1/4" elastic to the edge, folded the neckline hem under and topstitched to raise and stabilize a provocatively low and “wavy” neckline.

    Looks smart, and thanks for the tip about the elastic. I have never been able to find a wrap top or dress that falls properly because they are usually made for a larger bust. I’ll give it a try too!
