Yes my Diane Von Furstenberg inspired wrap dress is done and I even managed to vlog the process! So if you want to see the end result and and also hear me being super nerdy and go deep into all the little details that makes a wrap dress, well then this video might be worth watching 🙂
In it I talk about everything from adjusting the pattern and expand on a bunch of knit sewing techniques, such as how to interface knits using fusibles, a new way (for me) to add facings to knits, sewing cuffs on stretchy fabrics, my best pressing technique for knits and I even try to achieve invisible hemming on a lycra knit using my sewing machine (watch the video to see how that goes!). Plus some sleeve drama!
Even if you are not planning to make a wrap dress perhaps some of the tips I share in the video based on my studies of DVF dresses can be useful if you just want to try out more high end finishing on your knit garments.
Also, I plan to make a post about wrap dresses sewing patterns so if you know of any, and perhaps have tried them too, please share in the comments! I used both Butterick 5030 and Onion 2037 for this project.
