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.

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.

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: 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

Thanks for the tip on the interfacing. How did you finish the front neckline?

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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".

Debbie Cook said...
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!

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

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.

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!

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!
