Vintage Pattern Review – Wrap and Go Apron Dress

Were it not for my (ahem) “Problem Areas”, I would make this dress in EVERY conceivable print!  I LOVE this pattern!  It’s Butterick 4231 circa 1970’s.  It’s SO simple to sew and is perfect for days that you’re short on time but still need to look awesome!

The dress only has two main pattern pieces, with no zips, darts, buttons, etc.  Just tie it at the back of the neck, wrap it around your waist and tie at the front!  The pattern shows a short and long version, but it would be easy to shorten it a bit more to make a wrap top and maybe pair it with a fitted tee.

I used a funky African wax print for my first try, but I cut it just a tad too small so I will be making another soon for Summer.  Can’t wait!

Thanks for looking!
