Beautiful dress! What a great idea to extend the ties to wrap around to define your waist. I think the raglan sleeves look good on you but I know we see ourselves differently than others see us.

This dress looks TERRIFIC on you! The raglan sleeves are definitely a good look for you. What a smart construction detail to add the snap at the front. Love your fabric, too!

I think it suits you very well! Love your idea about the ties--I'll have to copy that!

Very nice dress. Thanks for mentioning the ties. That is a great idea.

Thanks guys! I think I will try some more raglan sleeve patterns, I may have been unfairly biased against them...

I almost bought this pattern recently then put it back figuring that I had plenty of wrap blouse/dress patterns in the stash. I may have to go back for it. I love that color on you. I think the extended tie is a fabulous idea. I like it BECAUSE it is a raglan sleeve, so much easier to put in than a set in! LOL

Haha - that is very true! Sleeves probably look slightly better on my arms than sleeveless, but I hate hate hate setting in sleeves, but actually really enjoyed putting these in, quite a doddle!

I'm always "iffy" with raglan sleeves but, for what it's worth, I think the dress looks fantastic on you.

Your dress looks really great on you, I like the print of the fabric. Through it was as test garment it turned out really well.

Very nice, like the cute pattern, I have this and was looking to see if I should bother trying to make it and I do like how some came out but I'm still wondering if it will be too much for me because I would need like a size 4 and this starts at 8 so do I bother? I want make a knit dress like this and I can't find a single pattern that starts at 4, even for the knit tops mostly, I think simp project runway is the only one consistently making patterns in a 4, but I think with them I'm a 6 or between 4 and 6, I dunno, I'm still trying figure it out, ut I know the 8 will be huge esp since you said it runs huge and I'm not even an 8 to begin with in any of the pattern companies, ugh. If anyone knows of a similar pattern that even comes in a 6, please let me know if there's a way to contact me on here, thx.
