How’s everyone coming with their wrap dresses? My niece came over this Sunday for a muslin fitting of the wrap dress I’m making for her. The overall fit of the bodice is good, but I do need to lengthen the torso by an inch or so. (She has a long torso.) Knowing that, I’m ready to cut out the dress from the fashion fabric. I’m using Vogue Pattern V8379 with an ITY jersey knit I bought in the garment district (photo above). Speaking of fabric, Gorgeous Fabrics is offering a 10% discount on full-price knit fabrics through the end of March. Yay, we love fabric discounts! You’ve been asking about full-bust adjustments for wrap dresses. Ann of Gorgeous Fabrics just reposted on her blog an excellent FBA tutorial she wrote a few years ago for the Sewing Divas blog. And my co-host Lucinda of Sew Wrong volunteered to write a tutorial on small bust adjustments, so keep checking her blog for that. (I think from her Instagram feed that Lucinda has currently abandoned the snow banks of Boston for a sunny beach somewhere; can you blame her?!) One thing I’ve been pondering is how to handle the neck and bodice area, the part that forms the V wrap. I went to Century 21 at lunchtime last week and inspected the DVF wrap dresses on sale there: This gray print DVF dress, above, has an attached band at the neckline. I like this treatment…. This black DVF dress has a self facing that’s simply turned in. The facing is stabilized with fusible interfacing, and the edge of the facing is just turned a scant quarter-inch and stitched in place. I like this treatment too. The pattern I’m using has an attached facing, but it could be easily adapted for a self facing. I need to spend some time with the fabric before I lock into a neck/bodice finish. Decisions, decisions! Be sure and check out my co-host’s blog post this week. Ruqayyah talks about making a muslin and things like ease, and she has lots of helpful photos.
