Yellow summery Wrap Dress

July 24, 2015

Sooo… I’ve been following We Sew Retro for a while now, but haven’t shared anything yet. I’m pretty excited 😀
A few days ago I finished my Wrap Dress from Gertie sews vintage casual! I’d bought the fabric some time ago (I guess it’s cotton, at least it’s woven without stretch ^^) and as soon as I got the book and flipped through the garment section, I knew I had to make the Wrap Dress pattern from this fabric!

It’s the first more complicated dress I’ve ever sewn – interfacing, facing, a collar, sleeves – so I’m very proud of it (: I shortened the hem quite a bit, but now I’m not so sure if it was a good decision… oh well!Gerties Wrap dress (Excuse the bad lighting ^^)

  1. Cute! I need to make more out of that book. If you wear it and it feels too short you can always add a strip to the hem of matching or contrast!

  2. I agree with Heater Lee Bea – if you do decide to add a strip to the bottom it would work out well, considering the pattern and the colors of the fabric. Optional idea at that point would be matching collar trimming?? fun possibilities if you decide to play with it in the future.
