Make a wrap dress – the “Simone” dress

In the fashion industry, as elsewhere, summer means color and zest for life. And this floral wrap dress in an asymmetric style checks all the right boxes. The dress has an attractive sporty cut and can be dressed up or down.

Using a slightly firmer fabric gives the wrap dress more stability, helping to achieve the asymmetric style. The dress in the pictures was sewn from a cotton mix with a weight of approx. 330 grams per linear meter.

We think wrap dresses are absolutely great – and home-sewn ones are even better!

The wrap dress comes from issue 68 of inspiration Magazine, where it was also used as the cover outfit. You can see the magazine cover with the cheerful summer dress below.

Whether on light blouses or flowing dresses, everything is blooming! From small flowers to large exotic patterns. Issue 68 of inspiration is fabulously floral.

Are you interested in the complete issue? If so, you can easily buy the single issue in our online shop:

The link takes you to the BERNINA website. The pattern is available to download during the month of July after you register for the BERNINA inspiration newsletter.

Unzip the zip file with the pattern

After downloading, you will have a zip file. In the extracted folder you will find:

  • Sewing instructions with information on materials, cutting out and sewing
  • An A4 size pattern for these sizes 36 to 48. You can print them out on your regular printer at home and stick them together. Make sure you print out the pattern using the “original size” setting. Check the test square to make sure the pattern has been printed out in the correct size.

In the article about the “Grace” pants, which was offered as a free download in February, some readers commented that the download did not work for them. Therefore please note that clicking the download button will automatically download the zip file to your computer. You will have to unzip it to access the PDF pattern for the dress. In Windows, you do this by right clicking on the file and clicking on the menu item “Extract all”. On a Mac, you can unzip zip files by double clicking the left mouse button.

Downloaded files are generally automatically put into the downloads folder, but this depends on the operating system, the device used and your local settings. If you download the file on your smartphone and cannot find the file or cannot unzip it, please try using a desktop computer.

Missed the download?

Do you want to sew the wrap dress, but missed the download for the pattern? No problem! You can order the magazine as a single issue (including the printed-out pattern) from the shop and have it delivered to your home. Simply click on the following link:

Have fun and good luck with your sewing!

    I have successfully downloaded Sinome dress, but please can you tell me where can I found instructions for it? I have found only a few sentences of description, but nothing detailed. Also, where is the pattern for the front facing?

    Best regards,

    I printed this twice with no luck, only to find that there was no US letter format….

    Is that a mistake or is the Simone wrap not available in US letter?
