I have loved wrap dresses for a long time. I think they are elegant and classic looking as well as flattering on everyone. After purchasing a few at Macy's and H&M, I dreamed of owning a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. She is considered the "inventor" of the modern wrap dress, but her "inventions" cost a lot of money. Last year, I found one at a consignment store in Buckhead -
Then, I dreamed of making my own. I started with a pattern that was for a fully lined cotton dress. It wasn't exactly what I wanted and was wearable only after sewing the skirt completely closed in the front and adding a tank top -
This week I adjusted a pattern that I found here to make a knit wrap dress -
Now I have enough wrap dresses to last a life time. Next I'm going to work on one for my mother.
