One of my favorite indie pattern designers, Patterns for Pirates, recently released a new wrap dress pattern. It’s called the Flutter Wrap dress. You may not know this but I love wrap dresses. You may have seen some pics of Made for Mermaids Isabel wrap dresses that I have made. This pattern is different from their design. I’m excited to share my thoughts and makes from this amazing pattern.

Made for Mermaids Isabel hack to be a cardigan as well.


The flutter wrap dress doesn’t have bodice and skirt like the Isabel. Instead it’s two mirrored pieces in the front and the back has a middle seam. Which is great for those who have to do a sway back adjustment. It has three different lengths and different hem lines for those hems with and without a flounce. The neckline has three options as well. A narrow flounce, a wide flounce that can have the look of sleeves, and the plain neckline. The narrow flounce is my favorite. I love the clean and professional look of the hidden binding of the neckline. It also has different sleeve lengths and styles with the option of being sleeveless.


The first one I made was the maxi length with a flounce skirt, a narrow flounce neck with a tank bodice. I love how flowy and feminine this dress is. I felt like a princess. I choose this floral fabric from Hobby Lobby. It is so pretty and reminds me of spring. Plus the rich color make it really stand out.


The second one I made was with the wide flounce neckline, tank bodice and a knee length with the flounce option. This dress is so elegant. It’s very ooh la la.


My third one is hacked. I was inspired by the pattern designer, Mrs. Judy Hale. I choose the knee length with the flounce hem line. I omitted the flounce lengthened the hem line to about 1 and 1/3 inch. I choose to use the flutter sleeve option. This dress is so fun and flirty. It’s perfect for a causal occasion or date night. The leopard print really makes it fierce.

This pattern has a youth version as well. I made a maxi length dress for my little one. She loves this dress and is constantly wearing it. It’s perfect for mommy and me looks.

The pattern has other options I haven’t tried yet. I planned to make a top but life happened. Make sure to grab this pattern at it’s introductory price and check out all of their other patterns as well. Much love and many blessings.
