How did I miss this review?! I think the dress looks great on you. I'm sorry to read about the gaping neckline. Thanks for the review.

Sue - I really like the dress on you. I've made a few vogue wrap dresses but not this one. My observations have been that smaller is better and it is often good to put clear elastic along the neck edge to stop it gaping - the one I didn't do this to gapes a bit. I think the dress is flattering so don't give up on it. :)

I'm sorry that this particular garment didn't work out for you, but the style really is smashing on you. Hope you find something similar that you're happy with.

Sue your dress looks great on you, but can see what you mean about the neckline.

Well, bummer! I thought it looked so cute in the gallery photo. I sympathize with you - not fun to spend time sewing something that doesn't look the way you want it to. Glad you have another wrap dress that you like.

Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your dress. My first reaction when I saw the picture was how great it looks on you. Nothing worse than gaping necklines.

It looks very cute & flattering in the photo. But I understand - posting is one thing, but if a garment doesn't move with you comfortably, it isn't worth wearing :(.

This dress is very flattering on you.

Oh my - first looking at the photo, my initial thoughts were: wow, does she ever have it right, having constant progress in her sewing and looking so good in this flattering style..... then I read your review .... & read your blog post ..... sure you'll rethink and find solutions to concerning issues. Thanks for your sharing.

I have this pattern ready to cut out today and I may make my muslin a size smaller after reading your review of it! I think that the idea in your blog of making an obi belt would be great with this dress.

I have this pattern and take note of the neckline issues. You don't say if you did your usual size or not. I wonder if one should do their usual Vogue size for a woven but go down for a knit? What do you think?

Sorry your dress didn't work for you. I agree that it looks nice in the photo. I recently had this same experience with a wrap. You could always wear it with a black cami.

It looks good in the photo, but a gaping neckline is no fun.
