Homme Wrap - Digital Sewing Pattern
The Homme Wrap : Dress and jumpsuit
Available in a B cup and a combined C/D cup, in sizes A to N.
Both views feature an elasticated waistband and a darted bodice that can be wrapped around the waist or tied in a bow at the front.
The wide leg jumpsuit comes with inseam pockets and finishes at the ankle, while the dress has an A Line skirt finishing below the knee.
Suitable for intermediate sewers and above.
Medium weight woven fabrics with good drape. Tencel, rayon, washed linen, silk noil, soft cottons etc.
Please note: If you’re using a patterned fabric with a repeat that you’d like to match, you may need more fabric than what is suggested above. Use your discretion.
Ensure your fabric is washed and pressed before cutting.
- Matching thread to your fabric.

This pattern has been drafted for a height of 5’7
The bodice has two cup size options - a B cup and a C/D cup.
To find your sewing cup size, measure your high bust and full bust.
The difference between the two measurements will tell you your size.
Eg: 2.5cm/1 inch difference = A cup
5cm / 2 inch difference = B cup
7.5cm / 3 inch difference = C cup
10cm / 4 inch difference = D cup and so on
If you’re between the B cup and C/D cup options, I’d try a toile with the B cup first.
This is a pull on dress/jumpsuit - meaning there are no zip or button closures. Because of this, the waist is designed to have enough fabric to be pulled over the hips. The
waistband is cinched in with elastic.
Please be mindful of this if you fit between multiple sizes and need to blend the pattern between sizes. If you have a smaller waist and bigger hips, it’s recommended to stick with the size that correlates to your hip measurement and bring in the excess waist fabric with elastic.
I recommend making a toile first to work out any fitting alterations you may need,
before cutting into your chosen fabric. Make sure the toile fabric is similar in weight/drape to your main fabric.
