I am thinking of making view D to go to a wedding this summer. Hadn't thought about using a woven; interesting idea.

Love that fabric! So glad you tried it out in a woven as it has inspired me.

A woven, you say? Hmm... I have an easier time finding wovens that quality knits where I live... may have to try this! Nice photos, really adds to your review.

Thanks for the sizing tips, I'm also 5"1 with the same shoulder type thing. Will be helpful.

I love this in a knit but wow, now you have me interested in trying it in a woven. They look terrific. Thanks!

Thanks all! Wovens are so much easier to work with, even though they're less forgiving fit-wise. When a knit pattern has really nice structure like this one, with many places to tweak the fit, it seems like a good candidate. Mollyshark, I'm a little tired of the wraps too - and RachelEsq, do not fear the princess seam! They are really not hard, just pin carefully and baste. Iron the seam open and - presto!

Very pretty dress in a very pretty fabric, and the lining is just perfect!

great job converting to a woven. all 3 versions are lovely. too bad the knit top is a poly...looks great, but makes you feel terrible!

Just lovely on you! That fabric is gorgeous and fresh looking, and it's great to see a different approach to this popular pattern.

I love the fabric you chose. Great job on the princess seams - still working up the nerve to try them...

I love sewing with wovens--so much more than knits AND I have this pattern! Thanks for the inspiration; your dress is great!

So very pretty! I would never have thought of making this in a woven. It looks very nice on you!

Have to admit D is my favorite. I think I'm tired of the wrap styles. Too many of them. The neck on this is incredibly flattering.

Wow, this looks really pretty in the Amy Butler fabric you chose. Great idea to make it in a woven.
