Not sure how but we missed this gorgeous wrap dress when it was released!

Akinori wrap dress is a kimono-inspired dress that hugs the waist with a belt. The elegant yet straightforward dress is designed for lightweight woven fabric but works equally well in jersey fabric. Although sewing this dress does not take much time, the technique of bagging and turning the front yoke takes some practice. Choose a lightweight woven or jersey fabric such as silk, cotton, viscose or any other fabric with a beautiful drape. If sewing the garment in jersey, size down one size and make sure the interfacing is compatible with the fabric. Lovley features include a pleated front, dolman sleeves, side pockets and a belted waist. The pattern comes in sizes 0-24.
