Knock-Off Monday: Wrap Dresses


My daughter and I needed some new clothes.  We decided to go window shopping on line and pin all of our favorites-"pindowshopping".  Then we went and bought fabric and patterns to achieve the looks for less. Checkout our board here.  Please join me every Monday (until I get bored) to see me knock-off the latest fashions.

I love a good wrap dress.  Figuring flattering and timeless-here are 2 inspirations:

wrap dress
Gap $60
wrap dress

I found this pattern: McCalls 6024 $.99

M6024

I started w/ view C (the black and white one), but the flounce looked stupid-I looked like a clown and that's just not what I was going for.  It might have worked better w/ a thinner fabric, but I picked it all out and and sewed the facing back on w/out the flounce.  I've got to say, that I'm pretty pleased w/ the results.  The pattern was pretty straight forward, I wouldn't tackle it for your first sewing project, but if you are an intermediate seamstress give it a try. FYI: I added a pleated ruffle to the bottom.

Have you ever worn a wrap dress outside when the breeze blew your dress wide open?  EMBARRASSING! Not wanting to flash my local congregation, I took some hot pink satin and made a simple skirt (I made it using this technique here).  Also check out the paint on my leg.  I didn't notice it until my hubby pointed it out in church.  I'm starting a new trend:)
FYI: I'm doing a pleated ruffle skirt lesson for my Sewing 101 on Friday. My sister is at this very minute picking up my new niece in Korea and I want to make here a skirt.

    Where did you find the pattern? I think I need this one. Also, I'd love to know how you did your pleated ruffle, maybe you could do another one of your wonderful how-to's?!?!

  5. I love wrap dresses, but somehow, I don't own any. Lol, definitely designed for slips though.:)
    And the ruffle is amazing.
    Huge congrats to your sister!

  19. I'm here to testify about what DR. OYAGU did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 2 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Shayla Bosschart on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OYAGU on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. OYAGU prepared and sent me Healing Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after two weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. OYAGU assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. OYAGU for help via email} oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome whatsapp him through his mobile} +2348101755322. , Thanks once again DR. OYAGU for making me a happy woman again.
