Wrap Battle Wrap Up!

Wrap Battle
McCalls 6884 | Burda 6829 | New Look 6301 | McCalls 7504

In my Wrap Battle McCalls 6884, Burda 6829, New Look 6301 and McCalls 7504 went head to head. If I were to rank the entries it would be in this order:

  1. Burda 6829
  2. New Look  6301
  3. McCalls 6884
  4. McCalls 7504

Burda is the hands down winner though I do love NL6301 it is a real-faux wrap dress after.The Burda is also a quicker sew since it has less pieces.

The two McCalls patterns were close. 7504 allows for a better fit, but I hate lining while M6884 lacks fit, but it much simpler to sew. Though my issues with M7504 can be fixed if I were to rate them “striaght out the envelope” M6884 wins.

Here’s my likes and dislikes of each:

McCalls 6884


  • Minimal pieces
  • Sleeve & length options
  • Side tie positioning
McCalls 7504


  • Pleated sides
  • Tulip hem
  • Waist seam
  • Lining
New Look 6301


  • Pleated wrap bodice
  • Pleated skirt
  • Neck & arm bands finish
  • Skirt & sleeve options

  • Tulip hem
  • Side gathers
  • Sleeve options
