Just makes me want this pattern and fabric more!

Diane, this is wonderful! I thought the A-line might be 'too much' fabric, but your choice of the slinky is wonderful. The wrap top sets it off perfectly.

Diane, this is TDF! How can I justify buying another pattern? Make that 2 please. I definitely want the shrug.

You did me a big favor struggling and winnning with this dress. I just bought the pattern and your review will be a great help.

Diane, I am in love with your sewing! One can tell that you are an expert seamstress!! I have tried and failed to do the clear elastic method on my tops. Is there any special needle, foot or a technique which one needs to use?

The dress looks wonderful and I'll be sure to do the clear elastic thing when I make it. I don't think the wrap top is the existing Wrap Top pattern (which I love) because it ties on the side. But it probably is some variation. I want it too!

Diane, I love your dress. I,too, have been eyeing the A-line and followed all the input at SW re: the size and construction. You did a superb job on the dress. Where do you get the clear elastic? I have not seen it for a while.

Hi everyone, thanks so much for all your encouragement! I have e-mailed Christine about the wrap top. I am thinking that it's a variation of her Wrap Top pattern, which Shirley mentioned in her comment. Teri, to your question: no, it's not unduly heavy, but definitely heavier than some other fabrics would be. Thanks to the stabilizing elastic, it feels really nice.

The dress is wonderful. Is it heavy to wear?

Diane, as usual your work is fabulous! I too just love the little wrap - it really sets off the simple lines of the dress.

Diane, I can't believe how much better this dress looks as you've made it up relative to how the pattern envelope makes it look! Wrap top is also available at patternshowcase.com. It's cj_212 there... under the Christine Jonson patterns, of course. :)

Diane, your dress is beautiful. I love the wrap. Is it a Christine original pattern? She should market this pattern; it really pulls the dress together for cooler weather wearing.

Way to go, Diane! I'll bet you look adorable in your dress, now that it's hemmed! I absolutely LOVE the dress with the wrap top! I've got to have that pattern! It was fun living through your trials and tribulations on SW....Gotta love the internet...
