Gorgeous! I love the color and glad someone else also made the shorter version. I still have to review mine.

Well, you sew faster than I do. (Most people do, I guess.) Great job and congratulations on getting your sewing goals met. I have the same idea -- to sew up this wrap or the Vogue version -- for my trip to London, coming up.

Your wrap is beautiful. I wish I had one onmy recent trip, since I refused to purchase a thin fleece blanket that the airline was selling. I will be ready for my next trip.

I will nap, and expect to have a wonderful time....and people will look at the wonderfully wrapped sleeping woman and think to themselves "where did she get that gorgeous wrap?!" Have a great time!

Oh it is so pretty. I'll bet it will be so comfy on the plane! Aren't you glad you gave in to the temptation of joining the sew along?

Fabulous - and ooh deep eggplant - that is one of my favorite colors.

Oooh gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. I love the colour. I am in the process of making one of these too, because I fell prey to cardi envy also. You did a great job on this.... enjoy wearing it... you can strut down the aisle on the plane like a supermodel, flinging your cardi over your shoulder as you turn.
