Highlands Wrap Dress :: Dandelion Drift

One of my many goals this summer is to catch up this blog here on all of the things I have been sewing!  Today I have the Highlands Wrap Dress by Allie of Indiesew.  I sewed this dress way back before she even released this pattern in April and have worn it a million times, but just got around to photographing it this past weekend!

The Highlands Wrap Dress is a woven wrap dress, with many options.  It comes with sleeves, or sleeveless, maxi or midi length.  I loved the idea of a long linen maxi dress that I could wear throughout the summer!

I grabbed three yards of Robert Kaufman Brussels Washer Linen, which is such good fabric!  It’s a linen rayon blend, so has all the breathability of linen, and the beautiful drape of rayon!

Allie drafted this pattern perfectly.  It has these sneaky little buttons inside the dress and under the tie that help hold that wrap front closed.  I’ve had wrap dresses before where I was concerned things weren’t going to stay covered, but not with this dress!  She also has beautiful finishing techniques throughout the pattern!  The corners are mitered, and the front opening and armholes are finished with a wide facing.  There’s also a little bit of elastic in the back under the tie that helps hold the dress snugly in place!

I feel very confident and elegant when I wear my Highlands Wrap Dress!  And every time I’ve worn my dress, I receive a handful of compliments, which always feels great!
