The FREE pattern for this wrap dress with straps is for a classic cocktail dress with tucks on the waistline and a wrapped skirt. This pattern is available in European sizes 44-50 (US sizes 12-20). I found this pattern in the Russian website porivan.ru.
The seam allowances are NOT included in the pattern. When cutting the pattern add 1/2″ or your preferred seam allowance.
This dress is designed as a retro “Charleston” style dress draped on the waist and with fringe on the hem, but you can remove the fringe and use the pattern for other looks. The result should look perfect and expensive. Below are some examples:
Floral and print fabrics will make a beautiful spring/summer dress.
Use sheer fabrics in classic black for a cocktail dress.
Use a sexy red fabric if you want a formal look. You can also change the length a use an asymmetrical hem like in this example.
For casual look, go with cotton fabrics. Striped fabric will also look great!
This is a classic pattern that can be used for different looks depending on the fabric you choose.

Are there any instructions? I don’t read Russian 😉
Yes it would have been nice if it was in English
You can translate it on Google but it’s still a little bit tricky!
I can’t get Google to translate the pattern in English, can you post it in English please?!
Thanks for your comment Ally. You are not the only one asking for translation, I’ll try to post something in English.
Hey ! I would need a bi of help on how much fabric I need to buy. I have no Idea how to calculate.
Thanks! Any ideas on what the bold arrows are marking? The cut of the right front bodice and right front skirt are drawn funny and I didn’t understand how to cut / mark / align them. Could use some help (:
English instructors would be amazing! This pattern is so pretty
