Hi BEAUTIES! It’s graduation season and Mother’s Day is right around the corner so I’m here with another special occasion look! I absolutely LOVE this one. The classic wrap dress is one of those pieces that is always in style and I don’t know whats taken me so long to sew one up for myself. I favor patterns such as this because I know I’ll get good use from them, there are so many trendy patterns available that are only “in” or stylish for a month or two but a beauty like VOGUE 8896 can be appreciated for years. Enjoy today’s post and have an awesome day! 🙂 Have you made this pattern before, what did you think? XO.

UPDATE: Check out the TUTORIAL on how I hacked this pattern into a Bell Sleeve!
Pattern Description: Wrap dress has close-fitting, bias bodice, gathers at shoulders and waist, tie ends, flared skirt and narrow hem – VOGUE 8896.
Pattern Sizing: 8 – 16. I cut size 8.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Similar, I modified the sleeve.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, very easy! 😉
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? This is my first wrap dress so I love the wrap feature! It’s super easy fit wise and pretty quick to sew up. I wasn’t fond of the length of the ties. I lengthen them in order to actually wrap around, rather than just tie at the front as the pattern suggests.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Yes I lengthened the sleeve and added a “bell” to that. I explain how I did this in the first issue of SEW SEW DEF Magazine.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Definitely, yes. I would recommend. It’s a classic dress style that won’t go out of style. 🙂
