Petaluma Faux Wrap Dress PDF

Itch to Stitch


Buy the Petaluma Faux Wrap Dress sewing pattern from Itch to Stitch. Wrap dresses are popular for a reason—the classic style is flattering on all body shapes. The Petaluma Faux Wrap Dress gives you the benefit of the flattering shape but with the convenience of a traditional back zipper. The A-line, petal-shaped skirt includes functional in-seam pockets. The Petaluma offers three different sleeve options—choose one or make all three! The pattern also includes options for A, B, C, D and DD cups. The Petaluma will become your go-to dress for years to come.

Suggested fabrics: Use light to medium-weight woven fabric without stretch or with minimal stretch, such as shirting, broadcloth, linen, satin, peach skin and crepe. Note that the wrong side of the fabric could show as you move around in the dress; keep that in mind when choosing your fabric. Lining for pocket bags: washable choices are cotton batiste and cotton lawn; for dry-clean garments, use Ambiance lining, polyester lining, china silk or charmeuse.

Fabric requirements: 135 cm (54”) wide fabric: dress with short sleeve, 2.3 – 3 m (2-1/2 – 3-1/4 yards); dress with double petal sleeve, 2.5 – 3.1 m (2-3/4 – 3-1/2 yards); dress with butterfly sleeve, 2.4 – 2.9 m (2-5/8 – 3-1/4 yards) // lining, 115 cm (44”) wide: 0.4 m (3/8 yard).

Sizing: US 00 – 20 (approx. UK 8 – 22). Please check the size chart and finished garment measurements.

    5 out of 5 Petaluma Dress


    Petaluma is a faux wrap dress that features three different sleeve options, a unique tulip shaped skirt and an optional tie belt. It has the convenience of a back zip and the bonus of pockets!!!! Sized from 00-20 with cup options from A-DD, this dress is figure flattering for many different body types! The dress sewed up easily and was deceptively quick to sew! I loved this pattern so much that I quickly sewed up a second version! More pictures and details are available on my blog at
