Envelope Back-Wrap Dress | 360-Degree View
Take a 360-degree journey around this envelope back-wrap dress featured in the Pattern Hack section of Threads #197. Start with a princess-seamed sheath pattern and follow the steps in Judith Neukam's "Envelope Dress," p.70 to change the neckline, draft the collar, and create a wrap style with ties. After adapting the pattern, you can make countless looks: Choose solid fabrics in subtle contrasting tones, prints, or high-contrast color blocking. This dress would be stunning in black with a sheer black collar and ties or with a crisp white collar. A wool crepe version worn as a jumper could make a unique office look. Enjoy the versatility.
