This section in the review of the skirts: "Few reviewers have tackled the crossover view, and self-described beginner AngeM found that the front neckline gapped. She suggested stitching the front closed, but you could also prevent gapping by stabilizing the front opening with clear elastic cut slightly shorter than the pattern piece." was confusing. Was this a portion of a review for something else?

Diane..so enjoyed reading your article..your research is impressive and so helpful. I like that you included any cautions that have been suggested by FoPR members..."cautions" although not always needed by all...are always helpful for all. Good job!

Thanks for your work on this Diane! And to all who took the time to write up reviews...

Interesting that every year it seems like more independent companies make the list.

Please let Sewaholic's Tasia know that if she would release her patterns in plus sizes, she would have a much larger following. (no pun intended!)
