ALABAMA CHANIN – INSPIRATION: WRAP DRESS

INSPIRATION: WRAP DRESS

The Wrap Dress style made its first appearance in the Alabama Chanin collection back in 2008. Over the years, it has been made in many different variations—dressed down in a basic tank style for summer as well as dressed up as a fully embellished dress for a wedding. The sleeve variations and length options make this garment endlessly versatile and easy to fit into your existing wardrobe.

    I need to get this pattern because you have inspired me to dream of all the combinations of garments the wrap works with. Thank you

    So fabulous! I would love one at each length (even though I no longer have a waistline that would do them justice). I am in love with the ballet color with gray beading!
