Marie-Fleurine :: sewmariefleur's Highlands Wrap Dress by Allie Olson
This is the longer version of the Hghlands Dress, sewn with sleeves. I lengthened the dress about 2", since I'm 175 cm tall, I moved the bust darts a little further down and I shortened the sleeves. I used cotton lawn for this version - it's really easy to work with, but I wish it had a little bit more drape - the dress looks even better when using a really drapey fabric!
My favourite details of this dress are the wide facing, the mitred corners and the wide hem. It makes the dress look so elegant!
Both sides of the dress front are secured by buttons, making the dress very secure to wear.
Allie's instructions are thorough and the drafting is very good, too.
