The Mirri Wrap Dress PDF sewing pattern is a very beautiful jersey dress with pretty front pleats. It's a little bit tricky to get the pleats folded in the right direction. To help you here is a step by step picture tutorial.

The trick is to fold the excess in the right direction.

Place the right front piece with the backside of the fabric up.

Grab and fold the first pleat.

Fold and secure the pleat. Start the next pleat where I'm pointing!

Fold and secure again.

Then fold the last pleat. This is how it looks from the back side:

And when you turn the fabric with the right side up, this is how the pleats look when folded correctly.

  • On the sizing for this pattern, I am a 12 (30F) bust, and 8 hip. I would normally do an FBA. But I am thinking if I cut out a 12 bodice and 8 bottom, and just increased the a size of the pleats so they matched, it would give me the extra room I need over the bust. Do you think this would work?
    Also, even with knits my biceps are normally a size or two bigger than my bust. With the dropped shoulders am I going to be able to grade our to larger armhole.
