Wow, this looks really pretty in the Amy Butler fabric you chose. Great idea to make it in a woven.

Have to admit D is my favorite. I think I'm tired of the wrap styles. Too many of them. The neck on this is incredibly flattering.

So very pretty! I would never have thought of making this in a woven. It looks very nice on you!

I love sewing with wovens--so much more than knits AND I have this pattern! Thanks for the inspiration; your dress is great!

I love the fabric you chose. Great job on the princess seams - still working up the nerve to try them...

Just lovely on you! That fabric is gorgeous and fresh looking, and it's great to see a different approach to this popular pattern.

great job converting to a woven. all 3 versions are lovely. too bad the knit top is a poly...looks great, but makes you feel terrible!

Very pretty dress in a very pretty fabric, and the lining is just perfect!

Thanks all! Wovens are so much easier to work with, even though they're less forgiving fit-wise. When a knit pattern has really nice structure like this one, with many places to tweak the fit, it seems like a good candidate. Mollyshark, I'm a little tired of the wraps too - and RachelEsq, do not fear the princess seam! They are really not hard, just pin carefully and baste. Iron the seam open and - presto!

Thanks for the sizing tips, I'm also 5"1 with the same shoulder type thing. Will be helpful.

A woven, you say? Hmm... I have an easier time finding wovens that quality knits where I live... may have to try this! Nice photos, really adds to your review.

I am thinking of making view D to go to a wedding this summer. Hadn't thought about using a woven; interesting idea.
