A stunning, vintage-inspired woven wrap dress with a wearable contemporary feel, the 1940’s Wrap Dress is a gem from the Sew Over It archives. Stylish, sophisticated and elegant, you can wear this dressed up or down, perfect for both daytime and evening. 


The 1940’s Wrap Dress features a wrap front bodice with a front collar and pretty shoulder pleats. The bodice gathers into the uniquely-shaped pointed waistband, and the dress closes with hidden buttons or press studs. The slightly A-line wrap skirt is flattering on all shapes, and the narrow sleeves mean you can pair this dress with your favourite jumper or cardi. Both the sleeves and skirt come with a choice of two different lengths.


The pattern contains full instructions with beautifully illustrated diagrams.


Sizes 8 -20 - we strongly recommend measuring yourself and checking your size against the back of the pattern (image above) as sewing pattern sizes are not the same as 'off the peg' sizes.


Light to medium weight cotton with lots of drape, cotton lawn, rayon, linen or crepe are great for this dress, for an everyday look you could also use cotton poplin.
