The perfect woven wrap dress.
A review of Vondel Wrap Top and Dress
This is the size 4 with no alterations. I always find it useful to know other bloggers stats for comparison so here goes. I’m 35”, 30”, 37”, bust, waist, hip. The size 4 stated 34 3/4”, 28 1/4”, 38 1/2” with the finished garment measurements as 36 1/2”, 41”, 42 1/2”. I would say the size 4 fit is perfect on me.
The line drawing shows 3 lengths. I went with the middle one but lengthened it by 2 1/2 inches at the lengthen line as it looked little short for me on the model.
It has a one-piece shoulder yoke with a curved center back and front and back gathers for shaping and three sleeve length options – cuff, half-sleeve and 7/8-sleeve
I have added a press stud for modesty but it’s not too obvious as the fabric isn’t pulling there.
The base of the back yoke dips down a little which is a lovely feature.
The details in the instructions to achieve a really beautiful finish are clear and straight forward to follow. Including french seams, even for the pockets – something I didn’t even know was possible!
