DIY Jersey wrap dress

DIY Jersey wrap dress
I’ve gained a love of prints lately so when the search began for a new jersey print, I spotted this beautiful zebra esq fabric at that is simply gorgeous.  It has a heavy stretch which makes it amazingly comfy for my growing body and is even more beautiful in person.  It’s a medium weight that requires no slip and surprisngly for jersey, irons very well.

This dress was made with Butterick B5454 View C with the following alterations:

-Added 26″ to the skirt
-Added 18 pleats around the skirt
-Removed 3″ from the length of the bodice
-Added 2″ to the length of the sleeve and added 1/2″ elastic
-Added 6″ to the length of the belt

Dress: DIY available for purchase here
Sandals: Giuseppe Zanotti
Cuff -Lanvin

    Wow! Your style is always so glamorous and chic. One of my favorite things about your blog is that you always look like you feel like a million bucks. You look like you should should be boarding a yacht in Sant Antoni de Portmany. Very inspiring!
