Notes Fabri: blue lightweight cotton with flowers.
Changes: I will not use the belt piece and I will only use one layer of flounces because the fabric has structure.
I want to make it a real wrap dress, but I understand that the original one is a fake wrap with a side zipper. I will not use a zipper but I will make my own ties and improvise a wrap closure.
I use only the right side pieces of the front , and cut it twice so both front will be right sides and overlap those. It worked well ! For cotton fabric 1 flounce is enough.
I have lined the dress with silk pongé and I added lace trim to the lining hem.
I found that the décolletage was way too revealing so I constructed a lace covering to insert. So I sewed it to one side and added snaps to the other side. It hides sufficiently my chest.
I find this a really nice design.
I added in seam pockets, and they are suspended inside fixed to the waistband so they are not bagging when stuffed.
Also I have added 3D effect embroidery to the center of many flowers but not to all of them.
I recommend this pattern, it comes together easily. Next time I will amend the upper part for more coverage
