Evening Wrap by Joellyn Keranan
Decide how long you want the wrap to be. The finished wrap is 80”. You will probably need a minimum of 70”. You may want to make up a sample. Also, experiment with where you want to place the opening. This had to be moved back from the point and to the top of the wrap to work with soft material.

- Select Evening from the Wraps section.

- Print the pattern.
Assemble the Wrap
- Cut out your fabric. This is slippery, sheer fabric so fabric and lining were cut out separately.
- Follow directions in the Sewing Guide for assembling the evening wrap. Because of the sheerness of the fabric, once the top and lining were stitched together, I serge finished the edges using a narrow 3 thread stitch, then turned it.
- Some beaded trim is added for sparkle and to weight the end to be pulled through. Use a zipper foot to attach trim.
- I did not make a buttonhole as the fabric is too delicate. I made a tube from a lengthwise piece of fabric, 3 in (7.5 cm) long by 1.75 in (4.5 cm), stitched a .375 in (1 cm) seam, serge finished it, then turned it, trimmed the ends a bit, turned under the ends, and stitched them to the wrap at my markers.
- The loop does not show in the finished picture above, but the beaded end of the wrap has been pulled through it. The direction of the wrap has been reversed.
