Diane von Furstenberg made the wrap dress famous in 1976 – and it’s still holding strong today. Occasionally, you can find her patterns on Ebay (for a small fortune), but since I’m not willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a pattern, I’ll just knock it off!
For this knock off, I’m going to use another Burda Easy Fashion pattern. Emma One Sock had a beautiful silk print that I wanted to use, but the total price was over $70 and I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on a dress right now (instead I spent $40 dollars for 3 different prints, plus shipping). So, I settled on some fabric that I found at Joann’s today. It’s a slinky, stretch print in black, white and orange. I think that it will look perfect for this dress and it’s so bright orange that I don’t have to worry that hunters will shoot me.
