DKNY-Inspired Wrap Project

When searching for a quick cover up this spring for those chilly evenings, you don’t need to shell out tons of cash for a designer item. All you really need is a couple yards of knit fabric and a little sewing know-how. I created the wrap below inspired by the infamous DKNY wrap for Bernina’s Sewing Republic. The pattern is very simple to draft and very customizable (I’d love to try the peep-shoulder version above next in a silk jersey). Head on over to the tutorial on Sewing Republic for a downloadable pdf of the easy-to-follow instructions.

My version of the wrap made from cotton interlock knit. For a more luxe look like the wraps pictured at the top, try a lighter-weight cotton or even a wool or silk version.

    • Hi Rachel,
      The Sewing Republic switched over to We All Sew, and all of my links died. The project lives on at their new blog here. Thanks for the reminder!
