Welcome to my blog! I created ‘The Ravel Out’ to capture my makes while I unravel my sewing ideas, one stitch at a time.

Ravel (out)

verb

  1. unravel; untangle.

  2. undo (twisted, knitted, or woven threads).

Summer Wrap Dress

In my opinion, every summer deserves at least one wrap dress. Here's this summer's version. It's a simple yet gorgeous green number. It was very easy to sew up and I'm pleased with my new closet addition. IMG_3311

I used the V9251 pattern to achieve this look. I didn't really have any issues with project. Below is the review of the pattern.

Vogue 9251

Pattern Description:  Wrap fitted dress with side ties, sleeve, and length variations.

Pattern Sizing: Misses Size 12. View A.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes exactly like it.

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very easy.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The neckline is a little too low. As you can see in the photo's I had to wear a tank top underneath.

Fabric Used: Polyester

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made this dress about 6 inches shorter and it still was a little longer than I'd prefer.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I would but I'll need to figure out how to raise the neckline without messing up the fit of the bodice

Conclusion:  Overall, it's a great pattern. Very easy to sew up and a great addition to your closet. Watch out for the neckline though.

I hope you enjoyed these photos as much as I'm pleased with the dress.
