Everyone says how wonderful they are, but I can't find any patterns to make one and they don't seem to carry wrap dresses in plus sizes in my area. I'm about a 26. Thanks!

I thought in recent years there'd been a good many wrap dress patterns out, but maybe the fashion tide has turned.  Vogue 8379 is still in print and has over a hundred reviews on patternreview.com; it goes up to size 22 and is supposed to have good coverage for ample bosoms.

There's also this wrap dress on Burdastyle: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/wrap-dress-plus-size-022011

I haven't used it, but it looks nice, and I hear good things about their patterns in general.

This is a faux wrap that looks like it'd be really flattering:

This one doesn't come in plus sizes, but it's really cute:

And check out this tutorial for enlarging a multi-sized pattern by vegbee!

This thing has saved my life!  You have to watch the bust and hips a bit, if you're sizing a lot, but it's still a great resource.
