You need to have 50+ posts and to have been here 60+ days. If you click the red FAQ link in my signature and choose access to forums, there are more forums like that listed there.

I have to go pick mine up tomorrow. I've been on vacation and my mail is on hold at the P.O. since I didn't want someone snatching them while I was gone. I can't wait! Nice to have something to look forward to coming home from vacation lol.

I am so completely in love with my two. I have one short and one longer. Long on me, but I'm only 5 feet so the medium length skirts are to my ankle. So far lots of different skirt wearing, and now hoping it cools down enough for me to wear it as a top. Too much fabric for a hot and humid day.

Who has worn them as a top (the short ones)?? I tried a short one as a top but I feel like I look preggy.(last thing I want at this point!)

I was afraid of this, but I don't have a short one.

I just picked mine up today so no pics yet, but I do have a question! Are all of them so sheer? I don't think I can wear mine in public, they are both sheer enough to see through. Easily. I do love the colors and prints though, especially the purplish/burghandy one.

I need to find a pattern for one. I have one, but the vintage fabric had a large hole and the only way for me to get it replaced is to send it back and wait again, but that means MORE shipping. I would love to get more, but don't want to risk their being more holes or snags that are just part of the "vintage fabric" and to be expected. Seems like I'm the only one and I'm so jealous that everyone else loves theirs. Anyway, if anyone finds a pattern, LMK!!!

ah i didn' know anyone was addicted as me!! i LOVE these things...hehe. i only have one right now. i go back and forth between what kind of wardrobe i want. i didn't knw there were coops! oohhh.......fun fun fun! course i don't have any money.

i saw these last year and bought one and i have used the heck out of the. the button holes need to be redone as done some of the hemming. theres also a hole in a piece (that looks like a burn hole) but i dont' have my reciept anymore and the kiosk is gone

i would really like to get 2 shorts, a super long and another medium. add in 2 or 3 tight shirts and my current shorts and i am DONE with a wardrobe for 3/4 of the year!

i've been wondering if i could sew one myself. it really looks like a BIG semicircle with half a neck hole with straps sewed on, 2 button holes and done. course its a lot harder than it looks i'm sure. my BIGGEST problem though is i wonder what fabric to get and where. i know the mix they use but i don't know if i can find an equivelent.

addicted i am! *straps self to train*

Does anyone know how to make one? Someone mentioned a kwik sew pattern, is that one as versatile as these magic enwrapture ones?

Are all of them see through?

Mine is not see through at all. The bottom layer is taupe-ish, and thick, and the top layer is blue and thinner, but neither is see through. Are yours gauze-like?

With the issues some people are having, I wonder if just buying them at full price might be a better option for some?

As for making one, they are cut on the bias, I think, so they will use a ton of fabric. You can't just buy a few yards and wrap it, you'd have to hold the fabric diagonally to get the draping you want. That much fabric would probably cost more than a full price skirt.

But here's a pattern I found on google:

and another involving isosceles trapazoids:

Hey mama's, i love these. Want to order two today so I hopeully get them beore I leave for FL in 10 days. I am 5'2" and about 110 pounds. I know they fit wide ranges because of their nature, but I am looking for one short to wear as a top and one for calf length dresses. Any recommendations for sizing from enrapture?

One of the three layers of fabric on mine is see-through, but because of the three layers, it isn't see through at all when wrapped.

I have a picture DH took, but I hate posting pictures of myself online.

I am still waiting on mine. I got one off of Ebay yesterday it comes with a DVD instrctional that shows you all the different ways to use it.
They had a picture of one that criss crosses on the shoulders, so you can use a criss cross bra with it ~whew~
I can't wait!

Yes, we do all want to see! I hate posting pictures of myself too, so I understand.

Well, the darker one of mine is not *so* see through when wrapped, although I can't wear it as a dress because each layer individually is completely tranparent. The other one is very gauze-like and completely transparent even when wrapped. It will work as a bathing suit cover-up, which is fine for the price I paid. I'm not complaining, just wondered if I ordered one full price and in a color I like if it would still be too transparent to wear... I like the wrap with the shorter layer as the top part of a dress if you know which one I mean, but neither of mine can be worn that way.

OK. For a limited time only , here it is with the see through side out (with the "Sweetie, I love you but could you take the picture already?" look on my face ) --

These were the pics with the purple side out:
I purposely tied them the same way so I could see the difference in pics.
