One Pattern- Several Looks

Here’s the idea! Have you ever found a great pattern and made it in several different fabrics for different events? We’re translating this concept into using ONE pattern and making various looks to extend our seasonal transitional wardrobe!  Let’s use Burda’s version of the wrap dress.

Daytime and Business

The wrap dress in a jersey knit is classic for day wear!  Solid colors like Navy or Torch Red are perfect for the office or any committee meetings you attend.

Weekends and Easy Dressing

Weekend attire is all about errands and rejuvenating with family and friends!  Use fun prints like Mustard/Daisy Rayon Crepe (Sold Out) or Field of Flowers Stretch Cotton for your weekend wrap dress.  For a trendy look, pair the dress with jeans as seen on the Burda Style pattern.

Live a Little for After-Five

A wrap dress for after-five? Yes!  Beautiful fabrics like Mini Black Sequin on Tulle or Black/Gold Stretch Lace (with a black lining) will look stunning for that night out on the town!

Be adventurous and think outside the box!  Remember, we don’t have to mimic what we see on the pattern envelope.  Be daring! Try new combinations.  Once you have determined that the fit is right,  you’re free to use them over and over.  Have fun sewing and check out all the new, beautiful fabrics at Sew Much Fabric
