Wrap dress 3489

Added Jan 20, 2011

by walkingwardrobe

Christchurch, Ne...






The dress is based on Kwik Sew 3489. The only thing I changed is widen the straps that go around the waist. The fabric is cotton and has almost no stretch. I would love to make this dress again with some stretchy fabric, so it’ll hug my body better and the lines of the dress smoother. However I’m still very happy with this version, I feel very lady-like in it :)

    Thank you all for lovely comments, they make me very happy! and best of luck to everyone who’s tempted to try this pattern. It is quite a straight forward pattern and not hard to follow. I’ve read about that if you’re using stretchy fabric, pick a smaller size because the sizes of this pattern are on the bigger side.

    This is a lovely dress. The hem is fab & it’s such a great shape on you. Well done – I am going to try it in red at some stage, fingers crossed!

    What a nice dress! I want to make a wrap dress for ages, but it seems difficult to me and I´m afraid of it… Also, the patterns for wrap dresses usually require stretch fabrics, and I have none experiences sewing stretch… and it´s hard to get some nice knit fabrics in shops. Congrats on this one, it looks great on you!
