Additional Notes

This PDF pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.

One thing that tripped me up is that the seam allowance wasn't always stated--I'm still fairly new to sewing so I wasn't sure if the default should be 3/8" or 5/8." I think I went mostly with 3/8" and it turned out fine luckily. I might have also missed it somewhere. Other than that the directions were super clear, and the sizing was great! I absolutely LOVE wrap dresses and was so excited to finally make one--this pattern totally de-mystified wrap dresses for me!

The instructions were extremely clear and concise. This is definitely a pattern I will make again!

Amazing! Love this pattern. Would highly recommend.

I love this pattern. It's so comfortable, and really fun to sew together. I made a few slight modifications to my pattern, read all about it in my blog post.

Freakin' love it!!
