Christine Jonson #526 Wrap Dress Pattern
Wrap Dress: Self-lined bodice and side ties, cuffed sleeves and a graceful flared skirt.
This version of the wrap dress offers flattering lines, great fit and simple construction. Includes both a sleeveless and long sleeve version with a great flounce cuff.
The genius of this wrap dress is in the double-lined bodice. The double-lining eliminates the need for any hemming or facing on the wrap front, and also allows for a clean-finished sleeveless version as well. The bodice is sewn to the skirt panel for a clean inside finish, too. This makes for foolproof sewing of an often-tricky wrap neckline.
Suggested Fabrics: Rayon/LYCRA® jersey blends, mattejersey. Knits with “snappy recovery”and drape are best. Knits with at least 50% stretch will fit best at bustline.
