Wrap dress sewing patterns

The humble wrap dress is super trans-seasonal and generally an easy, quick sewing project, so...

I thought it was about time I updated my go-to list of jersey wrap dress patterns.

Here are 5 patterns for you, including fabric suggestions.



1. The Rachel Wrap Dress from Maria Denmark

The wrap dress I sewed a few years ago is still on high rotation and is very similar to this pattern.

I love how it has the wide strip along the neckline which gives it a more modern look.

Suggested fabrics: Heavy Bamboo Jersey 

 The Olivia Jersey Wrap dress by Named Patterns

MaaiDesign stocks patterns from Named, and the range now includes the Olivia Dress! 

Named Patterns put stylish twists to classic designs. This wrap dress has a tulip shaped skirt, ends below the knee and comes with pockets!!

Suggested fabrics: Heavy Bamboo Jersey 

3. Westcliff Dress by Friday Pattern Company

Ok, so this dress is not quite a wrap, but totally deserves to be on this list... it features a faux wrap front and an A-line skirt, has gorgeous details around the shoulders and a simple tie belt. A cool and comfy summer maxi.

MaaiDesign has had this pattern from the Friday Pattern Company in stock for a while now as it proves to be popular though the seasons. 

Suggested fabrics: Cotton Jersey

4. Claire Wrap Dress by Sewing Pattern Review

This wrap dress comes with a trendy collar and includes several options so you can create it to fit your body type perfectly.  It also crosses over nice and high on the top too.

Suggested fabrics: Cotton Jersey

5. Kielo Wrap Dress by Named Patterns

The wrap dress that took the internet by storm and just keeps popping up on Instagram all the time!  It's definitely different from the other wrap dresses listed here as it wraps around from both sides.  It's such a beautiful design, that creates a great shape so I had to include it!  The paper pattern is available in the store and now includes a jump suit version as well.

Suggested fabrics: Cotton Jersey



Happy Sewing!
