It's a wrap!

Photobucket
Hah! There’s no way I’d be able to do this! Maybe it’s the undergarments that help, or Mr Drapo's huge hands! I can’t even master a sari - purchased one recently and there was no way I could 1. get it to look right, and 2. feel confident that it wasn’t going to fall off at an inopportune time! Stapling could help...or maybe sewing myself into it. The closest garment I can find that seems like it would work, is the 'infinity' dress. This is a simple dress that can worn a multitude of ways. Etsy has a number of sellers selling this type of garment - see a few below. And the red, black and white dress was found on the Instructables website with really clear instructions to make your own. Safer than a sari I'd say. Photobucket

I hugely admire those for whom sewing comes naturally, and wish I was a good seamstress myself, but it's not a talent I've been blessed with, so I'm all for no-sew dresses - especially if I could make one as stunningly lovely as the cobalt blue on in that last photo. Terrific post, dear lady, thank you for the fashion inspiration!

I sure could have done with Mr Drapo to lend a hand (no pun intended) over the last couple of weeks. Have a wonderful holiday and I look forward to your highly amusing and educational posts in 2013.

Hi Chrisy,
Thanks for the video, old Drapo was a whizzz wasnt he!..I loved watching it, I used to be a fashion buyer, and have done alot of dressmaking over the years...
I looove saris, and would love to own heaps of them...I just love the colours, and sheerness, and beading...
Have a Great XMas!...x..julia

These are all beautiful but I'm pretty sure if I tried this I'd end up with a black bar across my face in a fashion magazine with the word "DON'T" under my name.

Hope you're having a happy holiday, Chrisy. xo jj
