Classic Wrap Dress Vogue 8379

You can never go wrong with a classic wrap dress! It's easy to wear and instantly makes you look put together. This is my third version using good old Vogue 8379. You can see my first version, one of my very first posts, here. And my second version here

The fabric is this great geometric black and white ITY knit I found on Etsy. 

As for changes/adjustments this time around: 

  • I sewed the same size I did my first go around because my tissue is already cut. I am no longer the size I was 10 years ago but this is knit and honestly fits better now that I've put on some weight in different places. If I went by my current measurements, I'd be cutting 2 sizes larger today. This gives you an idea about the ease. 

  • I used clear elastic along the neckline to stabilize. 

  • I interfaced along the front of the dress from the bodice to the hem. The pattern only calls for interfacing in the bodice but I recommend interfacing the self-facing of the skirt as well. 

I think that's about it as far as changes. I sewed this almost exclusively on my serger, only using the straight-stitch on the small details like the darts. I was able to get this done in a 4 hour sitting, not including cutting time. 

I just can't get enough of these dresses! I just love how easy to wear they are and how instantly stylish they look! I'm sure there will be more versions to come.
