This nostalgic faux wrap front dress from the 1970’s is a showstopper! The dress is fully lined and can be made in two lengths with either bishop or bell sleeves. Add the sash for an extra fabulous design detail.
Pattern: Butterick 4790.
A different kind of wrap; the vintage walk away dress from 1952! This pattern only has three pattern pieces, it has darts in the front and back, and back waist and shoulder seams. This design is so different because the back wraps around to the front for a sheath-and-overskirt look.
