It’s a wrap!

A review of True Bias Calvin Wrap Dress and Top

Reviewed by Love, Lucie on 22nd August, 2023

I love this dress and can’t think why I haven’t made it up before!

My measurements are 34.5’’, 30’’, 37’’. I went with the size 6 knowing that I had the safety net of it being a wrap dress.

I’m 5ft 3. I kept the full length of the pattern pieces.

There is a lot of self fabric bias binding to make for this dress but I was happy to do it after my success with the Zadie jump suit exposed bias binding.

One thing to note – and I’ve read others have found this too, I found that the length of the bias binding straps over the shoulder resulted in the bra strap adjuster being at the front of the garment. I found that if I wanted the adjuster to be on my back I needed to cut off 6 inches from the strap length. Although it is likely my straps stretched out a little, they wouldn’t have stretched this much.

I incorporated 2 slits at the hem. I would do this again but make them longer.

There’s a lot more detail on my blog post
