announcing the cartwheel wrap dress sew-along

One of the bonuses you get with Liesl’s sewing patterns is that you get sew-alongs with step-by-step photos and extra tips and tricks. And we’re happy to announce that we have another sew-along planned. This time it’s for the new Cartwheel Wrap Dress. You can learn more about the pattern by visiting Liesl’s introduction post. Then come join us soon to make one alongside your virtual sewing pals as we will be hosting a Cartwheel Wrap Dress sew-along May 28-29.

Oliver + S Cartwheel Wrap Dress

Pattern Description

This girls’ dress slips over the head and fastens both in front and in back for a fun twist on the wrap dress. The A-line skirt has lots of flare for spinning and includes an extra panel for full coverage. Details include built-in cap sleeves and a back keyhole opening with a simple button/loop closure. Choose to tie the dress in front (View A) or in back (View B). The dress is easy to sew because it doesn’t have buttonholes or zippers, and the construction method is unique and fun.

Suggested Fabrics

Light- to medium-weight woven fabrics like quilting cotton, voile, lawn, shirting, poplin, broadcloth, and linen.

Cartwheel Wrap Dress Sew-Along Schedule

Day 1: Prepare the Bodice, Assemble and Attach the Skirts

Day 2: Assemble the Dress, Sew the Armholes and Ties, Hem and Finish the Dress
