OOTD: A Forgotten Dress

 Over the weekend I was sifting through my dress bin and found this dress which I'd forgotten.  If my memory serves me right, the fabric was purchased from Spandex House.  Of course the pattern used is none other than my rtw wrap dress pattern.

The best thing about the wrap dress is that it's still on trend. 


Check out this article the Top Ten Fashion Trends That Defy The Hands Of Time ... listing Fashion Trends for Fall and Winter 2012/2013, which also features  Erica B.





  

The Wrap Dress Style Flatters Every Woman's Figure !

Whether the wrap is in the form of a dress, sweater or top, the wrap is one look that can look good on nearly all body types. This versatile style will cinche you in all the right places, also obscures troubled tummy areas, and showcases your décolletage. It’s a great look you may want to cosider for your wardrobe."

So, if you have been hesitant about wearing a wrap dress... stop fretting and just go for it....

Great fabric choice for another great dress!

Thanks Carolyn. Looking forward to sewing up a few for fsll/winter.

I love the idea of wrap dresses but the two I've made just don't work on me. I think I need to try one with a straighter skirt like yours. Mine have had a more of an A line and they just look wrong on me. You always look so chic in these wrap dresses and I really want that look!!

Great dress. I tend to stick to slim skirt styles with dresses and this one is a real winner on you.
And I really love your shoes.

I just purchased a wrap dress pattern from Vogue. I have been hesitating on making a wrap dress but think I should give a try. It has been ages since I made one much less wore one.

Love your dress and fabric is perfect for this style.

It won't be sitting in the back of your closet anymore. This one is far too special. Wear it with pride. You look wonderful!

Nice dress, Sheila. I am on the slow boat to the wrapped dress. I cut out the pattern two (!!) years ago, altered it, and still haven't made the darn thing. One day...

Love the fabric print and the dress. great pairing!

Sheila said...

Thanks Ladies,

@ Carol: Actually the skirt is an A-line and tweaked the skirt piece of the pattern.

To tweak the skirt piece, I traced the left/right skirt piece, which has one side with a straight edge and the other side is angled.


With the skirt piece folded in half (wrong sides together) I draw a line from the waist edge following the straight edge of the skirt against the angle edge and thereafter cut off the angle part of the skirt which resulted in the left/right skirt piece having two straight sides. It sounds confusing, but has worked for me time and time again.

Another great dress! It looks great on you! I haven't made a wrap dress yet. I may have to give it a try. I'm a little chicken when it comes to fit. But, go for it... what can it hurt?

Myra said...

I love this dress too and you look absolutely stunning in it! I don't own any wrap dresses, but if I looked like this in them, I would own a ton of them!
