The Wrap is Where It's at!

Somewhere in my list of things I love you will find wrap dresses—and to be more exact, you will find this one.

I used the Colette Crepe pattern (if you have not checked out these patterns you must! The designs are cute, the instructions well written the packaging is simply marvelous) and some cotton eyelet fabric I picked up last summer in Atlanta when I was there for the American Sewing Guild Conference.

After a little bit of cutting, some sewing, and a two month break, I finally finished my dress and I sure am glad I did cause this thing makes me happier than a kid with an ice-cream cone in one hand and cotton candy in the other.

It’s 100% comfy to wear and with the inseam pockets it’s practical too!

I used the wrong side (or perhaps it was meant to be the right side) of the fabric for the ties to add a little bit of a sweet contrast.

I love the scoop front neckline, but even more I adore how the back crosses over itself.

And there you have it—my new all time favorite dress—at least until I make a second one!

Happy Sewing
