A wrap dress that mixes a ’50s housedress with the cool, comfortable and layer-able modern wrap dress
The Isla Wrap Dress from Jennifer Lauren Handmade is so stylish with its grown-on sleeves and wide, rounded neckline that’s buttoned at the back! The waistline darts on the bodice add shaping at the front and back. The gently gathered skirts has in-seam pockets and falls to below the knee. The bodice wraps at the back at an angle and the waist tie closes the dress and cinching it in. The back skirt overlaps almost side to side so you have plenty of coverage, even in windy weather. While the button at the back neckline is functional, the neckline is wide enough that you can easily slip over your head!
It’s suitable for light- to mid-weight woven fabrics that have some drape. Fabrics like cotton lawn, voile, poplin, linen, Tencel, light chambray, denim, and double gauze, sateen and seersucker are easy to sew and wear. This pattern is available in both Original and Curve sizes (A-F cups) in sizes ranging from 6-34 (NZ).
