Wrap Dress: Simplicity 9224
Updated: Apr 20
Hello Everyone! My life has been interfering with my sewing lately. I kind of forgot I had a blog, today I’m making time to write a quick review. My latest make Simplicity 9224 by Mimi G Style. Wrap dresses are my absolute favorite and this one is just lovely. I used this polyester crepe fabric I bought in L.A a couple of years ago. This fabric is perfect for this dress is light and breezy. This baby is going to be worn often this summer, I can easily dress this up or down.
This dress was easy to sew, it has an elastic waistband and an asymmetric hem. The wide hemline with mitered corners is so neat. The pattern instructions are very clear and easy to follow, great for beginners. I cut a size 10 for the top and and a size 12 for the skirt portion. Next time I’ll size up for the bottom portion because my waist needed a little more room. I keep forgetting, or maybe I’m on denial, that I have gained about an inch around my waist. So in order to make my waistband look good I added a couple of snap fasteners on the inside. Also I tacked down the elastic on the sides to make stay in place. Listen life is hard so eat an extra donut, it’ll be Ok. 😆
Even though I took several pictures they were not that great, I’ll share them later on Instagram. In the meantime I’ll show you how the inside looks. Last month I made another awesome dress so I’ll be back soon. 😉
