Willow Wrap Dress

(27 customer reviews)


All Love Notions Sewing Patterns are digital downloads, you may print them at home or send to a copy shop. A physical pattern will not be mailed to you.

The Willow Wrap Dress is functional, flattering and comfortable made with knit fabrics. The crossover neckline can be made lower to make access easier for those nursing mamas. The side ruching can be made with gathers or pleats and knee length, full a-line skirt is so flattering on all figures! The dress can also be made without the ruching for a smooth finish. Both styles can be done with a peplum skirt instead of a full length skirt. An optional flounce can be added to the neckline to dress it up. Bonus- the Willow Wrap Dress also has a maternity option!

    The pattern was very easy to put together and the wrap dress is gorgeous.

  3. Alexandria

    I love, love, love my Willow Wrap Dress! It is so very flattering, and breastfeeding-friendly dresses are hard to come by. Great instructions, great fit, great dress.

  4. Zulma (verified owner)

    It is hard to find pretty brest feeding clothes but this pattern is awesome! The instructions are very clear and I love that it includes instructions for the modesty panel. And it is seasons friendly :)!!

  5. Trista

    I love this dress. Being breastfeeding friendly is definitely a bonus.

  6. Sabine

    I just made my 4th Willow Wrap Dress and I’m sure there will follow more. It is such an easy pattern and so flattering and comfortable to wear. I haven’t regret buying this pattern for one second. I’m comfortable enough now with making this dress i even offered my friend to make her one as well as she has a difficult size to shop in stores.

    I haven’t had the chance yet to sew this up, but I can’t wait! I have some DBP on the way and I know it’ll look smashing!

  8. Becky Hubbard (verified owner)

    The Willow Wrap Dress is my favorite Love Notions pattern (so far)! It is so flattering, and the instructions are easy to follow. I love all the options that come with it: the flutter sleeves and flounce add a feminine touch and are super simple to sew.

  9. Lizel Schwartz (verified owner)

    I made this one in a top format for the office, and it was a definite winner! Got lots of compliments! It was easy to sew, and I enjoyed that this was a slightly different pattern from my others . It hides my slightly broader hips a bit and accentuate my middle making it look thinner that it actually is 🙂

    I have only made this pattern once and love wearing it. I did have a little fitting problem in that the bodice front left side that goes under the right side pulled where it was fastened to the side seam. I released the side seam stitching and it stopped the pulling. I will add some to this pattern piece when I use it again.

  11. Brenda (verified owner)

    I love that this looks like a wrap dress, but I don’t have to worry about wardrobe malfunctions (the skirt separating when I sit)! Plus, the instructions are easy to follow.

  12. Jaye Holland (verified owner)

    I just love how flattering this pattern is and the peplum top option is spot on! Love it!

  13. Cara (verified owner)

    One of my favorites! The finishing around the crossover feels a lot more professional than using a band.

  14. Lynette Schmitz (verified owner)

    I have made this pattern twice now. I love the fit of the crossover bodice top and the drape of the skirt is just right. I am so pleased with the fit of all of my Love Notions patterns.

  15. Robin Twerdok

    My VERY first Love Notions pattern. How have I not made the top version yet? I’m going to be rendering that soon.

  16. Beth StLaurent (verified owner)

    This is filed under dresses, but it makes one of my favorite tops! Such a flattering style and so many options for sleeves. Try the peplum top if you haven’t yet. It’s amazing!!!

  17. Amy Evans (verified owner)

    The most flattering dress pattern ever for us curvy girls.!

  18. Dianna (verified owner)

    This is by far my most utilized wrap dress! The fit is spot on!!

  19. Deneane Keane (verified owner)

    The Willow Wrap dress has a neckline that can be made higher so I love that I can get that pretty crossover look, but it’s still modest and stays in place. I think this is a pattern that looks great on everyone!

  20. stairs_ashley (verified owner)

    I love the option for a more modest neckline and flutter sleeves. 😍 I’ve only made one so far but definitely have more planned in the future.

  21. dmschindlbeck (verified owner)

    I’ve made 2 of these now. What a flattering dress! A very easy sew also. I’ve made a sleeveless version and a lined back version. So many options, my fave is the gathered bodice. The skirt portion has just enough volume without overpowering my 5’2″ frame. I shortened the skirt piece about 1 inch which gives me the perfect length.

  22. Aimee Villwock (verified owner)

    I love the Willow! I’ve so far made two for myself and one for a friend, with another gifting one on my cutting table now. Flattering, forgiving fit especially with the different neckline height options. Simple to sew, but enough details to keep it interesting.

  23. Kathryn Louisignau (verified owner)

    Super easy pattern, makes a lovely dress and no gaping at the top or skirt! Again, grateful for the full bust option! Win Win!

  24. dmschindlbeck (verified owner)

    I love this dress pattern! I use the full bust piece to get a perfect fit. I’ve made 2 so far, one sleeveless and one with 3/4 sleeves. Went together very easily, I used a cotton lycra for both and they have nice drape with this pattern. I haven’t tried the flounce hack yet but it’s on my list!

  25. Deb Carpenter (verified owner)

    I made my wedding dress using the Willow Wrap dress pattern and it is absolutely perfect!
    I made mine in navy crushed velvet stretch, the shirt hung so beautifully and the dress was a perfect fit.
    I can’t recommend this pattern enough!

  26. eugenieruth (verified owner)

    Amazing dress, great pattern. Really flattering and easy to make.I’ve done 2 in Liverpool solids. So many compliments. If you’re thinking of maybe getting this pattern, just do it, I totally recommend it. I can’t wait to make it in other fabrics and prints. That I got it on the Feature Friday and a code from Karina’s (Lifting Pins and Needles) for extra discount is just madness. Every time I wear the dress or even think about making another one I have a big smile on my face.

    Brilliant flattering easy pattern

    I have collected various wrap over dress patterns for my daughter who is in her early forties with a very curvy figure! It’s difficult now I have made this 4 times for her, to wean myself off this pattern. She has two in velvet: one black, one a deep vibrant purple: one in a palm tree pattern and one in some fabric which has abstract New York skyline images on it. According to the use, it’s easy to lower the neckline or raise it up. It’s been worn for afternoon tea at the Savoy Hotel in London: to see the musical Hamilton from the best seats in the theatre: and is equally at home either way. Cannot recommend it highly enough: lots of compliments for the seamstress when really, it’s an easy sew.
