What was your inspiration?
I just had to have a fabulous wrap dress for fall and winter. Once I watched Meg's course online I decided to break out and give knits a try. I have a great stash (patterns 426 and fabric 18 large tubs) and decided to do up the wool jersey leopard print into a long-sleeve faux wrap dress for thre fall and winter months. I love the new Vogue Pattern 8825 and so the process began.
This dress is VERY EASY
