If you are looking for the sweetest new fun, yet classy dress pdf pattern, look no further than Itch to Stitch Sewing Pattern Shop’s Petaluma Faux Wrap Dress! It is a pdf pattern for sizes 00-20, in customizable cup sizes A-DD, and not only has the cutest faux wrap style, but also has in-seam pockets, an invisible zipper closure, an optional sash, and 3 sleeve options. I chose the double petal option over the short and butterfly option for my first version, and I LOVE it!!
I sewed up my Petaluma in Knitpop’s Olive Crepe Georgette woven fabric. I love this fabric SO much that I played crazy pattern Tetris to make sure that I was able to make this dress out of my large scraps that I had left. It worked out, but just barely. Hahaha
While sewing this up, I didn’t run into any major difficulties, as the instructions were very clear and had great illustrations. I will say that you should Stop and TRY ON your cross-front bodice after pinning it to the skirt BEFORE sewing it on to make sure that you have a perfect fit.
