Linked

The 90s chain link print is back and is considered an iconic print today!  Dorcas, Brand Ambassador for Sew Much Fabric, has linked this print Two Chains Viscose Jersey Knit -Camel with a beautiful faux wrap dress pattern!  Thanks, Dorcas!


Okay, I'm no Aretha Franklin but I am rockin' this Two Chain Viscose Rayon Knit from Sew Much Fabric. I knew this classic print called for a wrap dress but I just didn't want to fiddle with a traditional wrap, then I remembered McCall's 6163 (OOP), a mock wrap that I'd made years ago and loved.


I lined the dress with Tricot, also from Roz, and it really made a nice finish for the front crossover pieces rather than just a foldover as the pattern called for:









I also love the lining at the neckline for a professional finish:

And after fell stitching by hand:

All of these finishes plus no a hassle "wrap" and the cute gathered on cuff sleeves make for an on-trend knit wrap worthy of praise from DVF herself! All fabrics available at Roz at Sew Much Fabric!
