Ribbon Wrap
by Anise Makoul

This file contains pattern templates only. Pattern instructions can be found in the Spring 2009 issue of Stitch.

Feminine ruffles and trims make this dress a showstopper. The long ribbon tie creates waist interest, while an attached lining adds overall body and shape. Creative layering of ribbon, tulle, and fabric make a romantic detail at the bottom of the wrap.

Guide to Full-Size Pattern PDF

  1. Download the PDF and save the file where you will find it easily. Once the pattern has downloaded, open the file and check that it has downloaded fully. The first page of the PDF is a layout drawing of the assembled tiles; use this as a guide while putting together the pieces of the pattern.
  2. Print the document as is, at 100%. DO NOT SCALE TO FIT and DO NOT CROP. The files are set up to be printed on letter-size paper (8 ½ x 11").
  3. To ensure that the pattern has printed at the correct scale, find the page containing the TEST SQUARE. The TEST SQUARE should be 2 x 2" (5 cm x 5 cm).
  4. To begin assembling the pattern, cut off or fold the margin on all sides of each page.

The pages are numbered in rows, so the first row of pages is numbered 1A, 1B, 1C, etc.  Line up the rows and match the dotted lines together so they overlap. Tape the pages together, using the illustrated guide to match each piece. Once complete, find your size, pin your pattern to the fabric, and follow the coordinating line to cut out or trace the pattern.

But where are the instructions. I have the pattern now and would love to use it but there are no instructions with it and I don't have the magazine.

Did you ever figure out where to find the instructions?  I would love to make the Mix & Match dress but am having the same problem...no instructions...

Yes, I too really would like to make this dress to wear for Christmas. Have you been able to locate the instructions? I'd really like to use this pattern but may have to go to BurdaStyle instead....

Oh my goodness I see everyone that prints this pattern seems to have the same problem. I guess I'll just have to figure out how to put this fabulous dress together.
