In the mid-1980s after studying Art & Design at Red Deer College, I was on my way to study fashion design in Toronto when I met my husband in Manitoba. I ended up staying there for 11 years before returning to Alberta 24 years ago. Loving wrap dresses, one of the designs in my portfolio was similar to this but I have never found something that I liked until I found this pattern by Sew House 7 and I love it. Since I haven't sewn much in years, I did find it a bit complicated but I am very happy with it. Both the linen fabric and pattern came from Rick Rack Textiles in Calgary...I love being able to support independent companies and designers.
