    I've got the magazine subscription and had read this article before seeing the online version. After reading it a second time, my conclusion is the same: it is too vague. I was really excited when I saw the title, but it was so generalized that I got nothing from the article to help me construct and fit a wrap dress. I'm very disappointed- I have four or five fitting books, but none address the challenges of fitting wraps or knit materials, and I had really hoped for something substantive in the Threads article.

    I agree with Stacywacy. Totally.
