Description

With a last minute scramble, I have to find a suitable outfit for a wedding that is less than a week away.

I’ve decided on a lengthy wrap dress, in a woven knit fabric and went to a local fabric store in search of something suitable and found a stunning knit fabric (below), that I think will do the trick.

There are tiny gold flecks in the fabric and the colors are perfect!

So, now for the dress pattern. I would like to do a longer wrap dress this time, with raglan sleeves and couldn’t find such a pattern so I had to settle on a course of ‘franken-pattern’.

First, I traced the top pieces from the April 2015- model and then the skirt pieces of the Oct 2011-model, both in size 40. No need even to draft a new pattern, just cut out the pieces and sew together. I did do a quick check to make sure the skirt and top pieces match up at the waist widths.
