Wildwood Wrap Dress
Original or Curvy
Sew House Seven

$19.00 each

The Wildwood Wrap Dress by Sew House Seven is perfect for the office, parties, weddings or when you just feel like wearing a dress.  It is a true wrap dress, although with a detached, obi inspired belt.  The beauty of this dress is created by the drape of the shawl collar and enhanced by the waist and shoulder pleats.  It has generous front pockets, and a slim skirt with a wide, faced hem.  French seams are used to construct the upper bodice so version B looks pretty once the sleeves are rolled up.  Choose a below the knee hem or longer midi-length hem.

Although it was originally designed with linen fabrics in mind, short sleeve version A also looks great in slinky and drapey silks and rayon fabrics.  The dolman sleeve version B works best with more stable fabrics such as linen and cotton.

This pattern is rated intermediate due to the skirt facing technique and French seamed shawl collar and shoulders.

The pattern envelope contains a full size printed pattern and printed instructions in the selected size range.  Please choose from the original size range 00-22, or the curvy size range 16-34.  Sizes are based on body measurements, not ready-to-wear sizing.  If you are between sizes, please read below for design information for assistance in selecting a size, as well as checking measurements in the gallery images.
