This post is long overdue I know, but I have a good excuse. Life!. Yes, folks, life gets in the way sometimes, and we just can’t keep the promises we make.
I do have some updates.
First off, the Flickr group is now set up, so why don’t you head up there and start uploading your ideas, muslins, and makes? Make us jealous with your sumptuous fabric choices, share your knowledge, get inspiration, and best of all, inspire others.
Secondly, a few links to help you with your wrap dress.
A fashionable stitch did a sew along on a a shirt dress and a wrap dress. Loads of tips.
This Threads article focuses on wrap dresses. IF you do not have this edition, or are not an online member, let me know. I will see what I can do.

My friend Sandra, who blogs over at Threadie, has a very informative post with links and videos on wrap dresses here. She is French, so her blog is in French, but I am sure you can get Google to translate the page for you. You can still watch the Diane Von Furstenberg video for eye candy.
Sandra also provided us with the following links.
