Long Sleeve Wrap Belted Dress

I liked the dress from the first sight because of my favourite wrap design but while sewing my mood swung about it from full disappointment to full satisfaction :-) I have few ideas as for the sewing here but the thing I would do next time (although I don’t remember i ever made twice any pattern) – omitting the pleats on the left front part. These pleats surely create bulging and add more belly to the belly. After some frustrating moments I finally liked what I got and feel comforatble and confident in this dress.
The jewellery was made by myself, too.

Material Notes

Cotton knits. Probably my fabric is not so thin as it is in the magazine, besides, it has white wrong side so I refused from the ruffles.

    I feel your frustration! Made the same pattern, and didn’t think the pleats were very elegant… Took me some time before I was happy enough about the result.

      Yes, you understand me in the best way. They published the similar pattern but without pleats on the below parts in this year #8 issue… It is exactly what is expected from such a dress. I hope to give it a try next year.

    I like your version better. Yes the pleats sometimes add more to the belly. Overall you did a stellar job and its a keeper!
