I love making clothes that transition from work to weekend and between seasons.
The Kielo wrap dress by Named is a wonderful pattern as it’s a great layering piece and looks effortlessly glamorous as well as being a fast easy project.
Here’s the description by Named:
- Very simple maxi dress with an interesting shape
- Sleeveless design, you can download a free sleeve add-on for the dress here!
- Wrap tie closure at the waist
- Slim skirt and a vent at the back
As the project is designed for knits if you are sewing it in a woven fabric I suggest making your version a few sizes larger.
Here are a few different versions I’ve made.
The top right was made in a black linen. As I prefer sleeves I added a rectangle of fabric around the armhole to make a small sleeve.
This dress can be worn in so many different ways! My favourite version is the colourful middle one in a crepe. I have some black stretch silk in my stash which needs to be a Kielo.
Have you made a Kielo dress? what’s your favourite way to wear it?
Happy sewing xx
