The wrap dress

As the summer lingers on Paris and keeps 30° C in September, I take pleasure in wearing my summer outfits, especially when I have spent the spring sewing them.

Today I show you my wrap dress, simple as hello. I took the basic bust pattern, added 2 breast darts, made a V neckline and rounded the bottom front. For the sleeves, I cut the cap of a basic sleeve and added some horizontal gathers.
Sewing this dress was as simple as cutting it. I had to add the facings for the neckline and hem of the dress which perfectly matched the line of the garment.

I took a striped cotton, not too soft to keep it structured, and obtained a dress that can be worn both in the office and on vacation. I admit that this is an exception for me as I generally separate my workwear from weekend and holiday outfits, but for this dress I did not manage to give it an exclusive place. And you, do you also dissociate your clothes for the work from those for the weekend / holidays?
