Elodie Wrap Dress Pattern
Elodie is a modern take on a classic wrap dress. Romantic and flowy with multiple skirt and sleeve options, it’s equally appropriate at a park picnic or a special wedding.
Elodie features a softly flowing bodice, with release pleats under the bust and a dolman style sleeve. Choose between a short sleeve or a longer, more formal option that ends at the elbow. The skirt is swishy and voluminous and comes in three lengths, above the knee, midi or maxi, with optional patch pockets.

- Elodie can be made in a wide variety of fabrics. Light to medium weight wovens like linen, cotton poplin, batiste, voile and chambray will have a more casual feel. Choose a drapey woven like silk, viscose, tencel or rayon challis for a more elegant or fluid effect.

How do I download my PDF Pattern?
First, we suggest creating an account in our shop so you can access all your files in one place at any time!
After you place an order, you will land on a page with a custom download link. You can download your pattern then, or use the link included in the order confirmation sent via email. If you don’t receive a download link via email, please check your junk mail as it may have been rerouted (and add us to your safe senders list so it doesn't happen again!)
Am I charged for taxes?
All Canadians are charged GST and possibly PST depending on where they live in Canada. We do not charge taxes in the US.
Customers based in the EU and UK will also be charged VAT on all goods. Regulations have changed in recent years requiring VAT to be collected based on where the customer resides (and not where the company is located) so we are legally required to collect and remit VAT even though our company is based in Canada. You can read more about the VAT regulations here.
What currency will I be charged in?
Use the dropdown at the top of our menu to choose USD, CAD, AUD, GBP, or EUR dollars to view prices and checkout in the currency of your choice.
For AUD, GBP, and EUR currencies, the price you'll see is linked to the daily exchange rate between USD and your currency, which means prices may fluctuate. For our Canadian customers, we have established set prices that will not vary with exchange rates.

I purchased this pattern to make my dress for one of my daughter's weddings. I make the long version with the longer sleeves using 100% linen fabric. The dress turned out beautiful and fit great. I had many complements. I plan to make the shorter version with short sleeves also.
I printed the pattern at work on our large printer, which was great, so I didn't have as many pieces to tape together. It took me a bit to figure out how I needed to print it, but once I did it was good.
I had to read through the instructions several times because it was different from any pattern I have used before. The instructions were good. The dress sewed up very quickly. I used all French seams because I love a clean seam line and did not want to have to worry about the fabric raveling. I guess if I had an issue or complaint, (and it is really not big) it would be the way the pattern says to cut out the fabric. It shows to cut on a single layer. I had to figure out how to best use my fabric so I could cut each piece in a double layer. I feel like the pieces are more accurate and definitely the same size if they are cut out together. I would very much recommend this pattern and plan to use it more in the future. I had several people ask if I would make them a dress just like it.
I am truly in love with this pattern! Ok i know i say that every time a pattern is a match made in heaven but i can't help it when everything is how i visualized it. The instructions are easy to follow and i did not had to make an fba with the extended sizes. A bit of hassle with the belt as It was not possible to cut it in one piece. The midi skirt is almost maxi for me (5'2) but it is fine. I am about to finished my 3rd version just 2 weeks after the 1st one. This tell you how much i like it and i am thinking sewing 4th one for new mom as a gift. It would be easy to breasfeed and easy to fit the waist area. See a great versatile pattern!!!
This is a great pattern and I really love my dress! It’s super flattering and comfortable, and the pattern directions were well-written and easy to follow. I did struggle a bit with cutting out the many pattern pieces on one layer of fabric, as the skirt pieces are too wide to cut two layers at once, and I ended up having to piece the belt together, even though I tried to follow the pattern layout. But once I had everything cut out, it was smooth sailing. As someone who’s 5’2”, the midi length was more maxi on me, but that was fine. I’m sure I will make this pattern again!
I found this pattern well written and easy to follow very pleased with the result.
Lovely pattern which is as much fun to sew as it is to wear! The instructions are clear and easy to follow, and the pattern provides a lot of possibilities to create very different garments for all kinds of occasions.
The Elodie dress pattern is a very straightforward sewing project. The instructions are clear and very easy to follow. The sizing is spot on. I'm impressed!! I did make a couple of tweaks. I think my torso is an average length and I normally don't have to modify the "big name" patterns, but I needed to lengthen the bodice by one inch, otherwise I found myself tugging the dress down constantly. Also, the tie for the right side of the dress (not the one that feeds through the waistband) needs to be shortened by 9 inches or so if you tie it at your left side, otherwise it is much longer than the other tie and hangs below the hemline. I really love this pattern and have made 3 versions of the dress already!
