VONDEL Wrap Top & Dress - PDF DIGITAL DOWNLOAD
Although very Parisian-inspired, wrap top VONDEL is named after the Vondelpark in Amsterdam - a park where I have spent countless, blissful hours biking, playing with my kids and relaxing on picnic blankets.
Wrap top + dress VONDEL is a feminine, easy-to-wear true wrap with a deep V neck and a long waist tie to close. VONDEL features a one-piece shoulder yoke with a curved center back and front and back gathers for shaping. With three sleeve length options - cuff, half-sleeve and 7/8-sleeve - as well as three lengths - top, short dress or midi dress - you can make a different VONDEL for every occasion. This pattern includes French seams, the burrito method and other creative techniques to achieve a beautiful clean finish. Thanks to detailed illustrated instruction, this is the perfect pattern to learn French seams or to up your sewing game!
halfmoon ATELIER patterns do not follow standard sizing charts. It is therefore important to choose your size based on your own measurements and the chart below rather than according to a typical ready-to-wear size. Final garment measurements of the top and dress are included in the pattern.
Wrap top VONDEL has been designed for light- to mid-weight woven fabric with drape, such as double gauze, crepe, silk, Tencel, rayon, linen, shirting, voile, etc.
Because of all the different options between a top, short dress and midi dress, as well as different sleeve lengths, fabric requirements vary widely. A detailed list of fabric requirements for three different fabric widths is included in the pattern. The tables below are for 137 cm, or 54", wide fabric and assume that you will be making your own bias tape.
fusible interfacing, bias tape, coordinating thread, (optional) 6 mm (3/16", size 4) sew-on snap

My name is Meghann Halfmoon. I am the designer and creator behind the sewing pattern label HALFMOON ATELIER. I believe that simple design and simple choices can have a big impact: on the way we feel, on the way we live and on the world! However, choosing fashionable, socially conscious products is still harder than it should be. I can help make it easier.
Well-made foundation pieces help simplify our lives. We need less, but they add more to our closet and leave us feeling polished and put together for all occasions. We can also have a positive influence on the world by choosing to sew with sustainably and ethically made fabrics. By using ethically sourced fabric, we are helping the people – mainly women – who create our textiles. It’s just a drop in the bucket, but that bucket is full of millions of little drops.
My mission is to design simple, unique sewing patterns and facilitate sewists to source sustainable, ethical, organic and fair trade fabric as a small step toward my vision of a world in which sustainable, ethical production is simply standard.
