Pattern #1802 Rachel's Maxi Wrap Dress
Rachel's Maxi Wrap Dress
An easy-wearing maxi semi-wrap dress to make an instant statement.
The design features a rounded V neckline with wide shoulder tank or cuffed T shirt "Dolman" bodice options, and a cross over flattering pleated wrap over "Tulip" hi-lo skirt.
The tank top option has bands to finish the neck and armhole edges
Complete the look with belt loops and tie.
For a really easy-peasy sewing option, instead of pleats, simply gather the skirt into place - or use elastic.
A Sew-A-Long video is available on my Youtube channel and also is embedded at the bottom of this page, as well as a printable construction sequence.
All seam and hem allowances are included.
The pdf is a Multi-size pattern fitting XXS-4XL
Please see below for a detailed description.
Style #1802 Difficulty: - 3 / 5
This is a professionally drafted fashion industry construction pattern, which I have made and graded to industry standard guidelines.
A Construction Sequence is included, and a Sew-A-Long video is available on my YouTube channel and is also embedded at the bottom of this page
Please purchase a knit fabric - jersey - that has a moderate to very good stretch as the garment requires this to fit properly. (Stretch gauge download link is below) Suggested fabrics include Double Brushed Polyester Spandex and mid weight T shirt knits, please click on the "More Details" Tab for information.
- Pleated waistline
- Waist tie with belt loops
- Sleeveless V neck tank top or T-shirt bodice option
- Tank top has banded neckline and armholes
- T-Shirt bodice has grown on sleeves with a cuff finish and banded neckline
- Wrap over pleated maxi length cut away skirt
The pattern is a multi-size pattern to fit the size range of XXS - 4XL
The pattern was made as a body close fit on the bodice. Please refer to the Actual Fit chart for sizing information. It is recommended that you sew a test garment first to check your size. Choose your size based on the waist fit.
Available for purchase is a digital download, a pdf file able to be immediately printed to your home printer. Download the pattern after payment. Once purchased, the pattern will be in your account forever, and you can download it as many times as you want. Due to the nature of the product there are no refunds.
It is printable in both US letter and A4 sizes. The pages are very easy to assemble, simply match the letters and numbers of the grid and tape or stick glue into position before cutting out.
Please ensure before you print that your printer settings are set to "DO NOT SCALE" (Print actual size)
Please print the first page with the test square (page one) as a single print job before you send the full pdf document to the printer, with your printer settings on "do not scale". This will print a test size square which you can measure to ensure the pattern will print to the correct size. This square is 10cm (which is just short of 4 inches - 3 15/16").
Because muti-size patterns with pleats need lots of detail, this can get confusing on one large pattern piece. To make it easier for you, I have made the skirt piece printable in colour to make cutting sizes easier, also each size also has its own individual replacement pieces if you find the main skirt pattern a little confusing. The remaining pieces are printable as black ink with grainlines in red ink.
You will need Adobe Reader to read the file and a printer to print out the pattern.
This is a PDF construction/sewing pattern. This is not a finished garment.

NB The original release Trim pattern was provided as a multi-size ( all sizes) pattern. Replacement pages are provided to allow you to "switch out" selected pages for a single chosen size to make some of the pattern markings easy to see.
When the pattern was later updated "No Trim Layered" files were added to the download options (choose US Letter or A4 size printers) and it has each of the sizes in its own layer
