About the Rachel Wrap Dress Sewing Pattern
This jersey dress features a plunging neckline, that hugs the body due to the wide ribbing, cut shorter than the neckline. It has short or elbow length sleeves and ties, you can tie around the waist or at the side.
With no darts or special details, this is a relatively fast and easy dress to sew. You can make it today and wear it tomorrow!
Make your dress in a dark wool-blend jersey for wearing with tights and boots in the colder months, and make a short sleeved version in a brightly coloured rayon-jersey to wear with great heels for the summer wedding, you are going to.

Recommended Fabric for the Rachel Wrap Dress
The Rachel Wrap Dress was designed for jersey fabric that contains a bit of elastane (sometimes called Lycra or Spandex) to give it a good recovery. I like to use rayon jersey with 5 – 10% elastane.
The chart here, will give you an idea of how much fabric you need, when the fabric is 140 cm (55”) wide.
Not much. Just thread to match your fabric. And a stretch twin needle if you prefer to make a twin needle hem.
