Kielo wrap dress . Named Clothing

I’ve been sewing a lot for me lately, due to the fact that my kids don’t actually need new clothes (sad face!). To bad I blog as slow as I sew!

Anyway… A few weeks ago, Named released a new feature for the Kielo Wrap Dress, a long sleeve. I’ve had my eye on this dress for a while, but because it was sleeveless, it didn’t really make it through my check list. But now, with a sleeve option, that was a different story!
KieloWrapDress-01KieloWrapDress-02The fit is spotless and the cinched waist is quite flattering, but in all honesty, this wasn’t “love at first sight”. It’s been slowly growing on me… the more I wear it the more I like it, I guess!

I used a grey knit, medium weight and it worked pretty well. It has a nice drape.

I made a few alterations to the pattern. Shorten the hem to below the knee and added facings to the neckline.KieloWrapDress-06I really like the faux wrap, but what bugs me is the fact that this is not an easy dress to wear. You can’t just put it on and go about your life. I keep messing with it all day, trying to keep everything in it’s right place.KieloWrapDress-05So usually, I just wear it tied in the back. It’s not as flattering, but much easier, when it comes to running after two boys.KieloWrapDress-03Plus it’s entertaining to my kids… they keep trying to pull the knot apart. 😀 KieloWrapDress-04

      Obrigada Patrícia! Gostava de fazer mais um em preto ou (loucura!) às riscas! O mais novo adora puxar-me pelo vestido! 😀

    I really like it!! I love the grey knit you used. When I first saw this pattern, I thought “pass”, but now that I see it with sleeves and the ties in the back, I love it! I know that’s not how it’s supposed to be, but I prefer the look. Cleaner lines and definitely more practical. I think if I were to make it, that’s how I’d wear it, too! <3

      Thanks Emi! I guess the important is to make it your own… There’s no right or wrong! 😀

    Uau! Tão giro que te fica 😉
    I personally love the tie-in-the-back version – looks perfect for running everyday errands and it’s great on you <3

      Obrigada Ana! Sem dúvida, para o dia-a-dia a segunda versão é mais prática! 🙂

    Adorei Diana, que giro!!

    Andei a namorar um tão parecido na COS!! (http://www.cosstores.com/pt/Women/Dresses/Tie-front_dress/46881-35045308.1#c-22755)
    Mas gosto muito mais desta tua versão, parabéns!
    E também gosto mais de vê-lo atado atrás mas acho que é porque por norma gosto mais de formas largas e adoro o cair desse em baixo quando tem o nó atrás.
    uau! 🙂

    Ficou giro! Estava aqui a pensar se ficaria bem em ganga! O estilo de ceretza, mas nao sei se a ganga nao seria muito pesada…

      Obrigada Cátia! Também já me lembrei disso (adoro vestidos de ganga!), mas a ganga é muito pesada, mas talvez chambray resultasse. 🙂

    Gosto mesmo de te ver com este look mais cintado. Fica-te super bem! Também gosto de ver com o nó atrás, tenho a certeza que também ia andar o dia todo a ajeitar o wrap heheh

    My phone and your blog are not friends haha…tried to leave comment yesterday and the same thing happened….I can suddenly only see left side of your blog and can’t scroll or anything. OH WELL, I just wanted to say how much I love this….You look AMAZING!!! I’m sad to hear that it is not super comfortable as the wrap version because holy smokes that is flattering on you but no matter what you look great!
