Maxi and wrap for my daughter

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The fit of the dress and how wearable it is. The wrap took a long time to complete but I really loved how it turned out. I made this outfit for my daughters 20th birthday, but I have borrowed her wrap a couple of times. ; - ) What advice would you give someone starting this project? This type of construction is so relaxing to do and the final product is so self satisfying. Take your time and enjoy the process.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • button craft thread and white createx paint
  • hand made anna's garden stencil
  • peasant dress pattern from Alabama Studio Sewing and Design book.

faux nom asked:
That's just beautiful, and your daughter wears it wonderfully! It's interesting to see the wrap and how she's wearing it. Is this one based on the pattern in the book, with ties behind the back? If so, I might have to make it!
kjano571001270 answered:
This wrap is from AC's Studio Sewing and Design book. I love this wrap and need to make myself one as well.

Thank you, and it is one of my favorite outfits that I have made so far. I like how it can be dressed up or down lending itself for more wearability.
Nixxi asked:
Can you help me ... how much fabric did you need for the ruffles on the tied wrap? Thanks
kjano571001270 answered:
Hi Nixixi, I used approx. 3/4 of a yard. Your yardage will depend on how wide you make your ruffles and how much you ruffle. I had 47 strips at a 1/2 width. I cut my strips on the cross grain and left the length so I was not limited to the number of ruffles I wanted to add. I love your jacket you made with the facets pattern. Did you use paint on that piece?
