Both are lovely cuts. I really like the wrap bodice but the other one looks more like a fancy wedding dress to me. The wrap bodice is a tiny bit more casual. I can't wait to see the finished dress. Both look great on you.

Hmmm at first I was really disappointed cuz I loved the other one but I'm warming up to this one. I think what's throwing me is the fabric. If I saw it in satin or silk or whatever you're going to make it in, I'm sure I'd love it too. I think the blue sash works better than it would on the other one. Ooh and some fabric covered buttons going down the back, even if just the fake kind with a zipper underneath, would look beaaautiful. I love those damn buttons Smiley
OK, I looked at it again and I like this one better now. It really defines your waist a lot better.

Thekster: Good idea to add buttons to the back.. I love dresses with buttons too! And the buttons on the first pattern would have been the fake kind over the zipper too. That pattern came with a button guide for where to sew them on over the zipper! Maybe I could use the same guide for spacing out the buttons. The new pattern will probably just need a few more, since the bodice back is longer.

VinceNoir: thanks!

Avian Flight: Actually the more casual feel of the wrap bodice goes better with my wedding, I think. We are getting married outdoors, surrounded by trees, so I don't need it to be as fancy as if I were getting married in a church. And thanks!

Yay, buttons!! I actually reaaaallly like it now, with the sash tied in the back. I think the final product will be absolutely stunning Smiley

I really like it with the new top. That is a gorgeous bodice and I may have to buy that pattern for myself because the top is so flattering! I also really like the sash - it ads a fun touch. Keep us posted on the progress =)

Hey, I LOVE the wrap dress--I've been looking for a pattern just like that for my wedding dress, and haven't found one yet!  Is this actually vogue 8446, or is it a modification of it?  Could you email me what you did, if you modified it (I'll see if I can find that pattern online)?  Thanks! ~Kate

Wow this is beautiful! I love it with the sash- it gives the formal dress a little fun flare. I think you've made the right choice to go with a bodice *you* like better, because its your day Smiley

Your posture makes it look like you are significantly more comfortable in the new on than the old one. Which will be paramount on your wedding day. I fell victim to  sadistic lace tightening sister and couldn't sit all day, and in your first dress it looks like you may need to stand or sit wth your spine perfectly erect through the whole thing to keep the shoulders up.

And, imho, wrap dresses just look prettier.

I'm definitely a fan of the wrap bodice-- I think it looks more elegant and comfortable than the first one. I'm not sure how I feel about the blue sash, though-- where you have it in the picture, it sort of covers up the connection of the wrap from the front to the left side of the dress-- a detail that is really beautiful in itself. Maybe it the sash could be attached lower?
