The twinset looks wonderful on you and that is the most unique fabric I've seen. You achieved your usual perfect fit. Sorry about the dental work. Ouch!

Wow, Debbie, as usual, wonderful review & terrific results! Your twin-set is really beautiful & the detailed review with lots of photos make me want to try this pattern really soon! On another note, I certainly missed your beautiful smile in the photo! I'm glad the reason for the somber expression is truly a temporary condition! (Been there, done that!)

Another great review, Debbie. Thanks. I'm hoping to get back to working on finding a TNT T-shirt pattern!

Pretty! The snaps make it look modern and fun. Have we been introduced to your fit model yet? Does she have a name? For CS & twin needle tunneling, you can try wooly nylon underneath (bobbin) and/or loosen the needle tension. Maybe the sleeve insertion techniques are shown to let people know there are two ways to do it, like a choice? But a KS-esque sewing course (Method 1 or 2) would have been more clear if that was the aim.
