Thanks for the review... I can see doing this up in a thin knit.

There is absolutely NO NEED to do an FBA with this pattern! It is VERY roomy in the front. It is modest and stays put on my C-cup chest without being tacked down. The wrap has a beautiful, full drape when worn as view A.

Thanks for reviewing this. I've been admiring everyone's knit cardis and been thinking that I probably wouldn't like the Simplicity pattern. I'm very large busted and didn't want that much fabric. I happened on this pattern today and bought it. I just have to figure out how to do a FBA on it...grrrrrr.

Your cardi-wraps look great! I love the neckline and waistline silhouette on this Vogue version.

Wow! I liked the first one, but this one is even prettier!

Wow! I wish I had paid more attentions to this pattern! Great save on the 2nd version, it looks fab!

I think you are getting some converts! Thanks for this update -- I love your final version.

Super cute turquoise version!!! For those only wanting to wear the wrap as shown in view A: Debbie Cook has a great easy fix for those bulky tie ends in her review of BWOF 01-2008-116 wrap-over top. (Make lengthwise "tube" at bottom end of each tie.)

Very pretty.

babbling brook: I found that the ties were long enough, but I used a very stretchy fabric. A good thing to check on before cutting!

Tiner W: I did drape this one in most of the ways shown in the video (I just didn't take pics.) It does pretty much everything the Simplicity one does, but some of the more draped styles look a bit different since there's less fabric in the front pieces.

Nice job! I'm glad somebody finally reviewed this. WARNING to others: you may find the ties too short like I did. Redraft for proper length and shape. (Ends of ties look bulky unless knit is VERY thin!)

Pretty! I bought both patterns for myself, just in case--I'm about 5' 3" and somewhat pear shaped, and I worried that the Simplicity one would overwhelm me. However, I'm wondering if the thinner drapes on the front of this one will be less versatile. I really want to try a lot of the styles shown on the DKNY video. I'm wondering if I could combine the two patterns--the back seam and waist shaping of this one with the drape front of the Simplicity?

How nice to see the first review of this intriguing pattern! It looks very nice on your dressform, and seems to have come out extremely well. Thanks for posting about the crossgrain layout. That's rare.

Thanks for this comparison. You did a great job with your muslin and it almost seems a shame to cut it up. This looks like a good option for us shorties, in case S 2603 doesn't work out.
