I’m done! Just in time for the sunshine too! This was an easy pattern to make. I love it! I’ve made a Sewaholic Yaletown before here. It was even easier this time as I already had the pieces traced and was very familiar with the pattern. So when @rocco.sienna, @sewsarahsmith and @sewing_in_spain announced their Instagram #sewtogetherforsummer Wrap Dress Challenge this year I was happy to make another Yaletown Wrap Dress.
I made sure I cut and matched my stripes/Chevron print carefully – pinning each stripe every few inches.
This fabric has a lot of stretch. I interfaced the neckline and used bias tape to hem the sleeves and used twill tape to prevent the shoulder and waistline seams from stretching out.
I hand sewed the wrap front bodice shut, a stitch every inch or so just to make it look real!
So it’s a Job Well Done (I think!) and perfect for the sunny weather we have been having for these few days.
