Spring Wrap Dresses!

These dresses were made for my sister. She chose the fabrics and I put them together. She needed something that was adjustable and easy to wear after having surgery.
 This was the first time I used the twin needle function on my new sewing machine. I love how easy it is to use. I will be using the twin needle more often, now that I know exactly how to set it up.
Here is the finished sleeveless wrap dress in hot pink. She has these hot pink sandals that look amazing with this dress.
 More twin needle fun! It amazes me that the thread doesn't get tangled. 
 Here is the green print fabric wrap dress.
 Here is a better shot of the print on the green fabric.
I think I am going to make a few for me. The only adjustments I would make are the ties could be thicker and add pockets. This pattern was from the Sew It All Magazine pattern, Spring Wrap Dress.
Happy Sewing!

What a charming little dress. This reminds me of one I made several years ago, however, it had an a-line flair in the skirt that made it very comfortable. If you play with the tensions on your machine, with the twin needle, you can pin tuck lightweight fabrics too. Have fun, thanks for sharing.

Is this the Sew It All pattern? Did you skip the bound edges, I can't tell from the pictures?

Hey Ginger,
