I'm not wearing to work a lot, I work with children and feel a bit overdressed when I do wear it to school!

Congratulations! That's a very stylish garment & I love the ribbon trim. It's the perfect garment for dressing up for going out - white shirt & pearls with heels, or dressing down for work - perhaps a red plaid or checked shirt with coloured tights & boots.

Thanks so much!!  Cheesy

This is great, Wendie! I love that you made your own pattern and it still came out looking so structured!

PS. "mannequin" works, or dressform!
Well a wrap dress isn't very difficult! I made several before with a pattern, so I did have an idea. After cutting, I just wrapped it inside out on the mannequin so I could pin it where needed. I'm not very "curved", which makes it less complicated to create a dress!  Wink And a having a mannequin helps too!
And thanks MareMare for the translation, sometimes I'm not sure if it's right!

I like your idea of wearing this with a plaid shirt and COLOURED tights! Why didn't I think of that? Thanks for the tip!!  Cheesy
