Wrapped – simplicity 2603

This year I’m wrapped in the cardi-wrap that many sewers did last year. So here’s my version.


I chose to make view A with a soft cotton/spandex burgundy piece that I’ve had for over two years. The original fabric that was supposed to be used was a marle grey but I felt that I needed a wrap with colour. I’ve not adjusted the pattern and I’ve used M size. Next time I’ll use S size. Normally on the shoulder seam I would use ‘seams great’ for stability but I couldn’t figure out where this would be. The centre back neck gathers are sewn with swimwear elastic so the gathers are even. So I’ve figured out a couple of ways to wear it and I know there are more…


The top is view E from the same pattern. I’ve done small pleats on the front neckline instead of the gathers. There wasn’t enough fabric to make the gathers a feature on this striped knit.
The jean were store bought. I’ve yet to attempt making jeans.
