Rayon twill Highlands wrap dress
I was really happy to be asked to help test the Highlands wrap dress. After making a muslin of the size which corresponded to my body measurements I was very happy with the fit with no adjustments. I cut straight into this rayon twill floral print I purchased locally at Abakhan fabrics in North Wales. I lengthened the skirt pieces to make it full maxi (I'm 5ft 11" so tend to lengthen most skirts if I want a maxi look...one of the joys of sewing!). I also shortened the side split.
I am so pleased with the finished garment. It sewed up really easily and the secret button closures to the wrap leave me feeling really secure in the wrap. All in all a superbly drafted and well written pattern. I'm one happy sewer. Plus this dress has me converted to the wrap dress. I've never owned a rtw wrap dress before let alone made one, but I adore this one!!
