Inspo for the Elodie Wrap Dress

Elodie Wrap Dress pattern // Styling and Inspiration | Closet Core Patterns

We love collecting inspiration or our patterns, and had a pretty massive secret Pinterest board for the Elodie Wrap Dress when we started working on this design. Heather and our patternmaker Celine use these as a sort of shorthand when they’re refining details and deciding on style lines. We think you’ll find some inspiration for your own Elodies here, whether that’s with fabric choices or ideas for pattern hacking!

Lady in Red

From rusty linen to a cheery dot, red always brings the drama! I could totally see this dress in a merlot velvet come the holiday season.

Bridal Beauty

We have always fantasized about styling a wedding look with a Closet Core Pattern and with Elodie, all our dreams have come true! Whether you use a special crepe de chine or something more casual like linen, the silhouette of this pattern can give you the versatile wedding dress of your dreams!

Print Mixing

I am so in love with this idea of mixing prints! Whether you choose two complimentary fabrics to mix and match side to side, top to bottom or to simply change the direction of a stripe; this is a sure-fire way to make sure NO ONE has the same dress as you. Custom to the max!

Keeping it Casual

When we were designing this dress, versatility was a key factor. And while you can certainly create a lot of drama with fancy fabrics and high-end styling, you can also totally make this dress out of the most basic cottons and linens for a dress you would put on with sneakers or flip flops. Easy!

Unleash your inner beast with a wild animal print! Perfect to take you from summer to fall, the fabric stores seem full of gorgeous animal patterned fabric that would be perfect for this dress! Roar!
