    Hi Jessica,
    Thanks for visiting my blog recently. Re: V8379 wrap dress, there is a slit on one of the side seams for one of the ties to slip through. That way, you can wrap yourself and tie it up! Let me know know if you need any further clarification. FYI, While this dress is still in my work wardrobe rotation, I am still bothered by how short-waisted this dress is. I thing the style lines are actually for an empire waist rather than at the waist because when I lengthened the bodice, the pleat were then lowered giving the sense of saggy boobs. Not nice! Good luck with the dress!

    I love the sales pitch of “New all electric”. Makes you wonder what a lesser hotel would have, oil lamps and a pot belly stove?

    Thank you! I went back and read the pattern and you’re right. You’re also right about how short-waisted it is. I was going to lengthen the torso on my next attempt, but I thought the same thing about the pleats. Is there another wrap dress pattern you’ve had more success with fitting correctly?
