This is the third wrap dress style I've made that I actually like! It appears to me that I prefer them to be more fitted than the normal A-Line style wrap dresses. (Of course that will probably change at some point because you know how we women are!) This pattern was a free download on the Craftsy website...it's the So Sew Easy Wrap Dress
All in all, this wrap dress is a "win win" in my book. I don't know if I'll make it again, but glad I have it in my arsenal of patterns just in case the urge strikes me for a nicely fitted wrap dress! If you haven't tried this pattern, it's so worth your time and don't forget, it's free!
I figured, what the heck it's free, give it a try and I am so happy I did. That's because it's a super quick dress to make and very easy to make changes to it if needed! Of course, that's exactly what I did! I raised the front neckline because I now know from experience, these style dresses are designed for women with smaller bust lines. That turned out to be a great move! Once the top portion of the dress was completed and fitted to my liking, I worked on straightening the bottom portion of the dress by turning the A-Line into more of a pencil skirt. Now put the two together and I have a great dress that I'm sure I'll wear over and over again!

Next up in my sewing cue is creating a pattern from a favorite RTW tee shirt...just in time for spring! I know I have to get moving on creating a wardrobe for Spring/Summer, especially since I'm not purchasing any RTW this year!
Thanks for stopping by and...
