Pattern Details

This is a thinking out-of-the-box design by my friend Ronnie. She was selling these dresses in her shop and I fell in love with them, as did many of her customers. These are actually half dresses that you mix and match. Ronnie could hardly keep them in stock because they are so adorable and fun to pair up. I offered to adapt her design for a sewing pattern, and we partnered up on this. There are 3 spectacular things about this dress: 1. It looks great and works on a variety of womens bodies. 2. Absolutely no gaping at the bust line. I am pretty proud of how I solved that in this pattern and I think you will love my wrap dress innovation. 3. It is ideal to take advantage of the pattern mixing craze that all of the big name designers are into right now. Find a couple of fabrics that are jazzy together and go for it. I highly recommend the knits that are sold right here on Craftsy. The pattern also works well with woven fabrics. Just pay attention to the drape. You don't want anything too crisp. You want drapey. You can whip up your first dress in a couple of hours and after that keep adding on, one quick half dress at a time for different looks. Pattern pieces are included for sleeved or sleeveless options. There is also a pattern piece for an optional neckline flounce. There are 2 sizes - Ronnie found that was all she needed to fit all shapes of women. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Bust or Hips 32" to 48"

Like so many sewists I know, I have been sewing since the age of 6. I started at my mother's feet, fashioning her scraps into doll clothes. By age 16, I was spending Summers sewing my wardrobe for the coming school year. I was known as a creative dresser. I wrote my first sewing pattern in 2006 as part of applying for a patent. Now I have thousands of satisfied sewing pattern customers and am very happy to be part of the online sewing community.
