I bought the Nori wrap dress and top from Elliedactyl already 2,5 years ago but never sewed one up. During my sewing weekend in February I sewed one for our middle daughter in flamingo fabric. She loved it! When I came back our eldest wanted one as well! I planned one out and traced the pattern, however there were other projects that got more priority in sewing. Then I had another sewing weekend. These weekends are perfect for sewing all those project I have planned but never had the time to sew up (at least other projects got more priority). So the first project I sewed during this sewing weekend was sewing a nori wrap dress for our eldest, also in (different) flamingo fabric.
The Nori wrap dress starts at 3M and I must say I am usually persuaded to buy a cute pattern when the pattern starts with small sizing as our girls (especially the middle one) is small in her waist. Additionally, I like my skirts/dresses to be long and the dress length of this dress falls nicely on the knee. So that means they can wear it for a long time (at some point in time it will be tunic length and they can wear it with pants as their chest size does not change much over time ;)). Lastly, I love the faux wrap style and it looks great on our girls. The dress takes up quite some fabric as it has a circle skirt (look at that twirl), but it looks amazing!
Fabric: All fabric comes from de Stoffenstraat.
Pattern: Nori wrap dress and top from Elliedactyl
Options: dress length (mid knee length) and top length (tunic length) with a circle or a gathered skirt and tulip sleeves.
Difficulty: I would say it is an intermediate sewing pattern.
