Sew Over It!   - 1940’s Wrap Dress 

Sizes included - 8 - 20 

A stunning, vintage-inspired woven wrap dress with a wearable contemporary feel, the 1940’s Wrap Dress is a gem from the Sew Over It archives.   Stylish, sophisticated and elegant, you can wear this dressed up or down, perfect for both daytime and evening. 

The 1940’s Wrap Dress features a wrap front bodice with a front collar and pretty shoulder pleats.  The bodice gathers into the uniquely-shaped pointed waistband, and the dress closes with hidden buttons or press studs.  A slightly A-line wrap skirt is flattering on all shapes, and the narrow sleeve mean you can pair this dress with your favorite jumper or Cardi.  Both the sleeves and skirt come with a choice of two different lengths. 

Designed for the intermediate to advanced sewer who have experience of making fitted garments, and working with fabrics with drape. 

Perfect in light to medium weight woven fabrics with lots of drape, this dress works beautifully in crepes, rayon’s, and even cotton lawn.
