It’s about time for another pattern roundup post! I love bringing all the indie pattern options for a certain garment type or style together so I can evaluate my options thoroughly. I know some of you like to do that too and I am happy to share my findings! We are going to take a look at wrap dresses today, and as always, let me know if I missed your favourite indie wrap dress pattern and I will be sure to add it to the list!
This post was inspired by the Sew Together for Summer Challenge! This Spring, sew a wrap dress and share it with the hashtag #sewtogetherforsummer to be entered to win prizes and join in the sewing fun!
To be clear about what kind of wrap dresses are accepted, please see this note from the organizers below. I have done my best to only include patterns that meet these requirements, but please confirm before you get sewing if it is important to you that your entry is 100% legit. 🙂
“A wrap dress should have a front or back closure formed by wrapping one side over the other and knotting the attached ties or fastening buttons. It should not have a zip. We will also accept faux wrap dresses which cross at the front and are slipped over the head. We will not accept dresses that only cross on the skirt and not the bodice.”
PS: Last year the challenge was shirtdresses and you can find my indie shirtdress pattern roundup here.
Let’s get into it! Click on the images or links below to go to the pattern designers website and see more. Patterns are in no particular order and are a mix of knit and woven fabric options.
