Wow! What a great wrap! I bypassed this pattern with a very quick look when it came out, thinking I'd have no use for it. You've changed my mind! It's a great look on you! Now I have to decide if 5'4" can carry it off half as well! Thanks for a very good review!

I bought this pattern as soon as it came out, then began to overthink it; I want it longer in back, and somewhere in the area of my knee in front. So far, I've been too lazy to do the math, but darn! yours looks so nice that I'll have to get out the pattern and my slide rule. Great motivation.

Your wrap looks lovely! Very elegant! And you're right about the length--I'm 5'2" and had to shorten when I made this pattern. Isn't it fun to wear?

I always love your style... That style looks great on you. Do you mostly wear it open or thrown over your shoulder (diva like)?:D Kay

I've been wearing it diva-like, but seeing the photo of it worn open, I like it that way too.

Great look...I think I am going to have to give this one a try, looks like fun to wear. Dusty blue is a great color for you!

I have sewn this pattern, and I like it very much. When sitting down it can be pulled onto your legs so it is a nice cozy wrap. My question is, would there be any way to lengthen the back without making the front 'tails' longer? I am 5'9", and my backside needs a little more cover than the rectangle design provides. Redhead, your wrap and top look great together. The color is lovely. Thanks!

Stunning look. Just what I was looking for. I'm glad she mentioned her height. It was very helpful. I'm 5'9 & I'm ordering!

I'm 5'9" and appreciate the comment about the back length. I've had this pattern for about 3 years?? and am finally getting around to making it. I like patterns that disguise my expanding waistline and this one adds some nice vertical lines that don't exaggerate my height.
