wrap top VONDEL | fabric + style inspiration

There is something so easy about wrap tops and dresses: effortlessly chic and oh-so feminine. The wrap top + dress VONDEL is what my nonchalantly stylish urban self wears when strolling through le Marais in Paris or gently gliding through the Vondelpark on a summer day.

The wrap top + dress VONDEL is designed with light-weight drapey fabrics in mind. Typically, this is more of a spring or summer piece. But I think that a VONDEL in a wool crepe would make a gorgeous fall or winter wardrobe item as well!

I made each of my three VONDELs in different types of fabric. One is in organic cotton broadcloth from Organic Cotton Plus, another in a mystery fabric (a poly blend? cupro? no idea!) that I got to pick out when volunteering at FABSCRAP and the last was a cotton-silk blend (sadly, not organic) that I found on my trip to NYC back in October.

  • Hi Laurel,
    I don’t have any videos of this, but I have received a few comments regarding the SBA and FBA tips that are included in the pattern. Namely that these tend to be helpful and have mostly resulted in successful adjustments. Let me know if I can help you further!

  • Do you have any videos or comments from sewists on how to do a full bust adjustment?
