Knit Wrap Dress – green batik

Here’s another success! I was delighted at how easily this went together and how easy it is to wear.

I used a “mash up” of Burda 7433 and the Alabama Chanin Wrap Dress as described in my last post to make a very cute knit wrap dress out of a batik knit. The fabric is 100% cotton, so the recovery is not springy, but I don’t need it for this design because of the wrap.

 

I had had been tempted to order this fabric on-line in the past, but when I saw it at the Puyallup Sew Expo, I was convinced. Some small bits of the batik resist were still on the fabric, so it was clear this wasn’t a print. I bought another piece of this type of fabric in a magenta/orange print which will make a cute dress in the near future.

  1. I got a sneak peak at this one in person before it was posted online. Looks even better on you in person! Especially nice when accessorized with a jacket.
