I have similar RTW wrap dresses that are knit fabric and would like to make this pattern from knits. I noticed that some New Look patterns say Just4Knits but this pattern seems like you can make from either woven or knits? What would the main difference be in sewing the knit vs. woven of the same pattern?

There is one review using a knit post but usually people seem to go down a size then they would use for a woven.

2 out of 3 of the reviewers had trouble with the sizing, though, and feel it was too big. Caveat emptor!

Thanks for the link. At least I know some warnings about the sizing of this pattern before starting!

Or you could just use the New Look wrap dress pattern that is made for knits. It's a winner.
