Wrap Dress Front HLT

Vogue 8379 by HLT (Heather Thomas)


Fabric: Bodice: silk multicolor, Skirt: Silk twill


Inspiration: As fall approaches, I love to include rich and saturated colors. The bodice coloring changes depending on the lighting. After searching through the top 10 list I chose the Vogue wrap dress because of its simplicity and the pleating on the front bodice


Modifications: As this pattern is made for knits the fabric that I used is woven but it still worked nicely, but wears more like a shirt dress. Reduced size to fit. Tapered the bodice, modified the skirt for petite by 2.5 inches and reduced the flare of the skirt. Changed the skirt from the grain to the bias. The bodice is originally patterned on the bias.
