Love, love, love this!!
This is the Closet Core Elodie wrap dress; another dress for my holiday.
The Elodie has a softly flowing bodice, with release pleats under the bust and a dolman style sleeve.
There’s also pleats in the back bodice. The skirt is swishy and voluminous and comes in three lengths. I made the midi length. I’m 5 ft3.
I made a size 10 but graded to a 12 at the waist and back in to a 10 at the hip.
I was pushed for time, so I didn’t bother with a toile and my linen like fabric was very cheap, from the bins at Abakhan. It was in 2x 2.5m pieces and I just loved it.
It fits like a glove and is so comfortable to wear.
The pleats give it more form, providing room for the bust without gapping.
You’ll notice I didn’t bother with pattern matching! The print was far too big to bother.
I left it hanging on my mannequin for a few days and the side seams in the skirt did indeed drop by a couple of inches, so well worth the wait.
The instructions were a joy to follow.
The perfect wrap dress.
Love, Lucie xx
