My Style Rules

You enter your height, weight, measurements and size (pick the largest if you're a different size top and bottom) and a model appears with your body type (mine was accurate).

Then style recommendations are made for you with a (slightly annoying I think) narrator.

I agree that most of the styles I've seen so far are flattering - well maybe not the jeans!

It also tries to sell you clothes but we're safe! We'll just buy the pattern!

Every time I try one of these virtual model thingies I get depressed about my body and think I can save my money on nice clothes and just throw on a burlap sack.

I'm sorry!

This one showed me things not to wear and I already knew those were awful.

The suggestions it offered were good ones. I thought it was helpful. I thought it was a good way to preview certain styles I was thinking about sewing.

I dunno -- I signed up and tried it, and the some of the stuff she said would look great looked horrible. Some of the stuff she said not to wear looked okay -- certainly not worse than her picks.

Where's my burlap sack? :)

when will the pattern companies get a tool like this?!? Seems like it would be a good way to sort/filter patterns for buyers.

I tried it and it did not work for me. As I am an inverted triangle shape the smallest hip size was way too big for me. Totally wrong.

I'm a pear. The recommendations were good but I had to squint and look at lines not the actual dress.

It was amusing how the "real" dresses that came up for me to buy were often not like the animated recommendations.

Well drats! I had high hopes for this.
