The Shirley Faux Wrap Top & Dress Sewing Pattern

The Shirley Faux Wrap Top & Dress Sewing Pattern

The Shirley Faux Wrap Dress & Top

I designed this pattern as one of the wrap style dresses and tops for season 19 of It’s Sew Easy tv. The Shirley wrap can be sewn as a top or a dress.   Because the style must pullover the head, this top must be sewn with a knit.  

There are many versions in this pattern including sleeveless, short sleeve, and long sleeve.  Then you have the option of sewing a top or dress.

This top is easy to sew and perfect for beginners!  Here are the details:

The Shirley Wrap Top & Dress #AW1913

A stylish faux wrap knit top and dress.  

  • Available in Misses Sizes 0 – 18 and Plus Sizes 16W – 36W
  • Skill Level: Beginner

Available in instant digital download format or the paper version with spiral notebook mailed to your home.

On a Personal Note

I just love the Douthat family!  I actually bought my first coverstitch machine from Allbrands, WAY before I ever met them.  Another first, my first embroidery event was with Allbrands.  We hit it off so well, many more followed, including the Houston Quilt Fest – which many of you have attended.  Last year the wolfpack made a real impression on the Allbrands booth!   A family owned business and an wonderful staff to boot.  

During this covid shutdown, Barbara and I have had so much fun on the live shows.  In fact, the entire Douthat family is amazing, which is why I am so excited to feature them today!  So the wolfpack will be stopping by Allbrands’ Facebook and Instagram pages to say thank you for your support!!!

I started working with Reen quite a few years ago at a series of Allbrands events.  At that time I was not a huge embroidery in the hoop fan, until I saw her projects!  Her bags were gorgeous and they looks as good on the inside as they did on the outside, I have been hooked ever since!!!
