After bad experiences, making wrap dresses and tops, I decided that they just were not for me.

Until this weekend.  I had a go at this pattern.  I don't know what the designer has done differently, but the front fits.  No gaping!  Straight out of the packet.   It's brilliant.

I'm considering this dress a wearable muslin, because the fabric is not bad, but not fab, and I need to lower the waistline by an inch. 
I predict more of these dresses in my immediate future.

'Cashmerette' worked hard with her pattern cutter to come up with an excellent fit and there is high praise for it on PatternReview.  Apart from wishing that she had a circular skirt option, I am smaller than the starting size for this particular pattern.

I definitely want to try this pattern. I am probably going to hack on my own full skirt as I don't look good in slim skirts. I don't find skirt alterations too tough.
