Erica, I love your style and trust your opinions. We have similar measurements, so I was wondering whether you can recommend a nice wrap dress pattern for a woven. I have some fabric I need to use!

Don't stop, Erica. Your reviews and pics are inspiring. This latest dress is TDF.

I can't tell you how impressed I am with your garments. You have fit and style absolutely conquered! They are all flattering, stylish and never overdone. And the review was great too!

I think you are gong to make Diane herself jealous with these dresses...

Another great dress. I also like your killer heels. :)

I love your dress! Is this a TRUE wrap. I have been on the look out for a pattern that is not a MOCK wrap. Thanks, and great work!

Stunning dress, so much nicer than the pattern envelope.

Erica, you have become such an inspiration to me--everything you sew is absolutely fabulous!!! I agree with others who said you should teach a class on style. Everything you make looks perfect on you. I will have to try this pattern.

Catty Remark: With legs like that, how could she look BAD? You do know how to feature your assets, Erica. Okay, okay...nice dress. ;-)

I agree with the comment right above mine ... you have a great talent for matching pattern and fabric to what looks great on you! Very pretty Erica!
chrisquilts_2 said... (3/8/07 9:26 AM) Reply
you are such an inspiration...every time you seem to pick a pattern that perfectly flatters you and then work the garment to perfection. You should teach a class on how to "know your style".

Very Nice Dress! I just bought a Maggie London version (less than the Diane Version) because I was too intimidated to try this on my own. Now, I think I will give it a shot and use my RTW as a template. Thanks so much for a nice review.

It looks great on you, as always!

That is definitely a little black dress that needs to be added to my collection. :0) Love it, you did a very wonderful job and always look so classy.

Erica this is just so classic!! You will get so much wear out of it..I love it!

And you have $250 and change to spare (depending on how expensive your fabric was)!

Love this - another winner Erica but then I wouldn't expect any less from you!!

Nice dress. I always look forward to your new project. As always, you have done very well. I think all your projects looks like RTW and that where I want to be. Thanks for sharing.

This dress is just fabulous. Do you hear that sound? It's me opening my bottle of haterade. Seriously wonderful work.

I enjoy your reviews because it's like attending a fashion show! You should string them together into a slide show on your blog.

Thanks so much ladies! CSM--Carla, The only difference between KS 3489 and 3408 is the curved skirt and the collar... that's it. They are both by the same KS designer.
Christina Sonja said... (3/7/07 0:06 AM) Reply
Looks great, and it's a classic that you'll wear for years to come.

Thanks Erica, that's helpful.

Thanks for the tip on the interfacing. How did you finish the front neckline?
CSM--Carla said... (3/6/07 11:10 PM) Reply
LOVE Your dress!! Enjoyed your blog. Erica B.--thanks for sharing! I can't help but smile when I look at you! Carla PS. I just checked and noted that you have reviewed KS 3408 (Here:http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/readreview.pl?reviewnum=15815. Would you please let me know what the difference is in these 2 patterns? Is it just the curved front on the wrap skirt? I have that pattern. Thank you in advance. Carla

Sew4Fun, there is no gaping and I didn't need an FBA. I actually dropped the bodice down a size smaller since the fabric is a stretch knit so that I would have negative ease. The neckline has an understitched facing that is tacked down on the shoulder seams.

You are my style inspiration. I love this. Very well done!
Sew4Fun said... (3/6/07 10:39 PM) Reply
Erica, nice dress. How did you finish the neckline and does it gape? Did you need to do an FBA? Sorry about the questions; just curious. :) You're the first person to review this dress.
