Kielo Wrap Dress
Simple sleeveless maxi dress with an interesting shape.
This pattern is suited for trimester 1, 2 & postpartum.
The Kielo dress is a wonderfully casual, yet stylish pieces of clothing! You can sew it either with or without sleeves. The dress has a neck band, a wrap tie closure at the waist and a vent at the back hem to add room for movement. The armholes of a sleeveless dress are finished with a bias binding.
For all variations, use a drapey but sturdy jersey that stretches about 30 – 50%. The garment has quite a bit of volume, so make sure your jersey isn’t too stretchy and heavy, as it can lose its shape and change the proportions of the garment. Note that for patterned or napped fabrics the fabric requirement may be higher.
