Then, Michelle Paganini has a lesson on matching patterns on fabric.
Finally, Angela Wolf shares a viewer question on fit which is lesson seven of the wrap dress and altering your pattern.
Ponte Knit Wrap Dress
This Ponte knit style is especially nice because the fabric itself tends to skim over your shape without clinging in the wrong places. Let's talk about Ponte knit for a bit. Ponte knit is generally a medium weight fabric with only a small amount of stretch. This knit stretches just enough to be comfortable. Good quality yardage will hold it shape well and launder like a dream. Fabric Wholesale Direct describes theirs as "a high-quality stretch knit jersey fabric that is extremely soft and has a slight sheen when draped." I've been eyeing the coral yardage HERE on their site for some time now. You'll notice that their version is called Ponte De Roma and has a blend of rayon, nylon, and spandex. I love Ponte knit blended with rayon. While you can find this fabric in an all-polyester version, I would not recommend it. The poly type simply does not have the luxurious look you find in a rayon blend.
Angela Answers a Question on Fit
Add a waistline seam and don’t forget to add seam allowance to each cut edge. Use a belt to cover up the added seam and no one will know you added it as a fitting technique. Now you can adjust for the bust on the upper section and adjust for your lower half on the section you split for the bottom. Adding this waistline seam gives you a double bonus, fit opportunities and the opportunity for style changes aka pattern hacks.
