I recently bought Image Wear Pattern IW1002.
I like the pants. I am not so sure they will look so good on me (that pear thing, again), but I like them. Seeing as I don't think any pants look good on me anyway I don't have anything to lose if I make them! They can't be any worse that the awful pants I made in the Craftsy Class.
I like the blouse, too, but I will have make the neckline a lot narrower so it won't fall off my narrow shoulders! I am not of fan of showing bra straps.
Has anyone ever sewn one of their patterns? The pattern is going to be awful to trace; Everything is crammed on one big sheet! There were supposed to be instructions in the pattern but they seem to be missing from mine. I contacted them and hope I hear something soon.

There are lots of reviews under "My Image", which is the name of the magazine they produce. I've made a bunch of their magazine patterns both for myself and my niece (Young Image was the name of their kids magazine, now it's B Inspired) and I've really liked the drafting and styles, though the translated instructions are sometimes iffy, especially in the earlier issues.
Martijn there is usually really quick to respond (and posts here, too) so hopefully he should sort out your missing instructions soon.
