Thanks to everyone who wrote reviews, shared their projects with us, voted in the poll and of course to Diane E for wrapping it up in this wonderful article.

Again, I haven't made a single one of these. While Diane did a great job showing them on a variety of shapes and sizes, I don't think any one of them would look good on me. Maybe next year.

Sherrill,
I can't speak for all the patterns (although I've made 4 and have 2 others in my collection) but Vogue 1250 looks great on everyone who has made it and I really think every size and shape has been represented in the reviews and across blogland.

I have several of the patterns but have made only two. I'll need to take a look at Vogue 1224 the next time they are on sale. I love the maxi versions!

Every year I look forward to this review. Great looking garments and great reviews. It certainly a good source of motivation to take a second look at the patterns I passed up last year. I made two and plan to make Vogue 1220 this spring. Thanks for compiling this information.

I have made six out of the ten patterns and have two more of the remaining patterns in my stash. Very cool.

How about a Best Men's Patterns list? Or aren't there enough of those to make such a list worthwhile?
