Modern Take on a Classic Wrap
A review of Closet Core Patterns Elodie Wrap Dress
This is probably the twirliest, girliest pattern I’ve made and probably the one that makes me feel the prettiest. There’s lovely pleating at the bust, no sleeves to set in, and a lovely skirt length (I’ve made the midi version).
The only thing that I’m not particularly fond of is the opening for the belt hole- I think for next time I will use a regular button hole as I think the finish will be neater. I think for my next one I will also shorten the sleeves as on my frame they are a bit too long.
I definitely think a beginner can tackle this pattern (if I can do it, you for sure can). There is also a super in depth material on Youtube from Sewing Therapy that helped me along while sewing.
Out of all my wrap dress patterns this one gapes the least and I had to make no adjustments. For sure a winner in my book.
