Sewaholic Yaletown – #sewtogetherforsummer Wrap Dress

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.

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

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.

Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!

Me trying to swirl and twirl – this fabric doesn’t want to!

  1. Love the fact that you used the darker pattern nearer the hem…so flattering and I’m sure it will become a real favorite in the closet! Good planning in the cutting out stage with stripes sure makes a difference…well done, Linda!

    Lovely dress and fabulous fabric, perfect for summer. The print looks deceptively tricky and you did a great job highlighting its beauty. You’re inspiring me to get busy with my wrap dress as I plan on participating in the challenge too.

  3. Nice dress!
    I love the colours and print.
    I’m thinking of entering but an not sure what pattern to use. I don’t have this one.
    I made a Vogue wrap dress in the past and didn’t like it. Not sure where to go from here
