Thank you for your review! I just bought the Khaliah Ali version of this pattern, which I assume is exactly the same only in plus sizes. Your tip on leaving the hem unsewn is good, especially if I wrap it, I think. I've been wondering how to tye the back, too, so I will also be watching for answers to your question.

Gorgeous - that is my favourite colour. I can't decide whether to make one of these. I tried one on in BGBG and wasn't convinced, but I love yours, so perhaps I will!

I think it is too funny how your elbow is pointing to the book titled Lust and here so many PR'ers have been doing just that. Pretty color, flattering style, perfect for you.

Thanks everyone! haha! Leora, that's too funny :) The title is actually "Lost," but I prefer your interpretation!

Nice color, but I find the style a bit too bulky on your petit frame.

What a helpful review and what a great color on you. I wondered about the arms, so thanks for answering that question. This weekend for me, this weekend.

Beautiful top. The color and style look great. I love the many ways you can wear it. I've just started cutting out this pattern and appreciate your tips. Thanks for the review.

Yep, I have to make this now! it is good to know that the tie in the back is as easy as the DK tutorial says: "just tie it loosely at the back". I LOVE all of the pictures--I think my favorite mode is one side over your shoulder-LOVELY!

Your Cardi-Wrap is fabulous and all of your style variations look great on you. Nice color too that can be worn with many other garments, dressy and casual.

It looks GREAT on you -- I don't think it is too bulky. I'm reading about this on the sew along and want to make one, but made the mistake of showing it to my picky husband, who told me to stick to sewing bags! I'm 5'2" and doubt if the long version would work on me, though. Thanks for all the tips.
