The Details

Who hasn’t fantasised about making the dresses Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon) wears when we meet her in the movie The Hundred-Foot Journey? I sure have, and now you can make your very own, in an easy, breezy wrap dress form.

With grown-on sleeves and a wide, gently rounded neckline (buttoned at the top back neckline), Isla includes waistline darts for bodice shaping at the front and back. The gently gathered skirts includes in-seam pockets and falls to below the knee.

The back-wrap bodice is angled from the centre back neckline down to the waist – the waist tie is then used for closing the dress at the waistline, cinching it in as much as you please.

The back skirt overlaps almost side to side (it’s stepped back just a smidge so you can’t see the edge of the skirt when looking from the front), meaning you have plenty of coverage, even in windy weather.

While the button at the top back neckline can be made functional, the neckline is wide enough that you can easily slip Isla over your head, meaning you can sew it permanently closed if you wish.

Isla is the wrap dress if your dreams, mixing a 50s house-dress with the cool, comfortable and layer-able modern wrap dress.

 

Multiple Bust Cups – C to F

Isla curve sizing includes pattern pieces for C-F cups, so that you’ll no longer need to make additional bust adjustments for the perfect fit.

Included in the instructions are a full set of Finished Garment Measurements, as well as detailed instructions on choosing the right size for your unique shape.

 

kill Level

Isla is suitable for confident seamstresses looking to up-skill.

If you have a few garments under your belt, Isla could be a great next step in your sewing journey. Build confidence with techniques such as gathering skirts, sewing in darts and stay-stitching.

If the button at the back makes you hesitant, you don’t need to make it functional. The neckline is wide enough to slip over the head, meaning you can sew it closed permanently with a few hand-stitches hidden with a faux button on top. You could even use a vintage brooch or go punk with safety pins.

 

Sizing

The Isla Wrap Dress is available in two size ranges: the Original and Curve sizes. This listing is for the curve sizing, 16-34 with cup sizes C-F. You can find the new sizing information here, including how to choose your cup size.

 

Fabric Options

Isla is suitable for a wide range of light- to mid-weight woven fabrics with some drape.

Cotton lawn, voile and poplin to linen, tencel, light chambray or denim, as well as double gauze, sateen and seersucker are easy to sew with and wear.

Rayon, silks, crepes and other slinky fabrics also work well, but be mindful of the weight of the back neckline closure you use, as it can cause sagging in very light weight fabrics with no structure.
