Wrap It and Top It With a Bow Dress McCall's 5314

Now out of Print pattern McCall's 5314 view C sans collar. A lovely bow sash wrap dress with circular swing skirt.
My fabric is from my stash. The white is a stretch woven with a cute staggered crown print in red. I found the white background to be to stark for my linking and therefor it sat in the stash for years. Randomly one day I decided I could use the fabric if I added a black chiffon overlay.
I flat lined my cotton to my chiffon. 
For the black accent cuffs and sash I use the left over scraps from my Gatsby Dress
 I mad a few pattern changes. I shortened the skirt to knee length and then also shortened the sash tie ends. I had to shorten the bodice, adjust for broad back and square shoulders. I also chose to turn the cuff slits to the inside of the sleeve as I did not want them to point outwards with out a collar also doing so.
If you love a great wrap dress, this retro inspired wrap dress pattern is tops!
