Thanks for the review. I am sorry to hear the pattern didn't work well. I've had problems with Vogue Elements patterns myself--in fact, I have tried two and neither worked for me. One was a bias-cut top and the other was a wrap top intended for knits. The former came out absolutely HUGE. I find that other Big 4 patterns are often oversized, but this was unusually big for Vogue. The wrap top suggested casing elastic at the neck edges, but even so it turned out too revealing to wear, and I think it also had the same problem you describe here. (It was very close-fitting, so I couldn't really wear it over anything.) Sorry I don't know the pattern numbers on these... I got rid of the patterns. I don't know if anyone else has used another Vogue Elements pattern that did work well, but for now I think I won't buy any more of them...

Thanks for this information. I also have a coat pattern and a pants pattern in my stash, which I haven't made yet. I wanted to make the coat pattern because it looked so easy. I guess I'd better double-check the fit if I make it! As for this mock wrap pattern, I didn't notice any major fitting problems. Just the problem with the seam I described. The neckline is revealing but I had raised it just a bit before cutting, and stabilized with twill tape. These things helped but I probably would have tacked it in place too. But the main problem was the seam pulling.
