They should pay you for this review. I'm sure your wonderful t-shirts will sell many copies of this issue. I'm very glad I already have mine.

Beautiful as usual, Melissa. I love both T Shirts but definitely like the fit of the 36 on you best. And now I want to make one up too!

The size 36 looks way better on you!!!! Lovely shirt!

Melissa, both shirts look great, but I think the 36 looks a little more stylish because of the fit. I'm frequently guilty of tracing precisely between 2 sizes on nested patterns like these, and the resulting size 37 might give you the best of both sizes - comfort and style. Enjoy those shirts; they look fantastic.

Your shirts have great fit. I like the 36, it shows off your great shape better. I am waiting for the fall/winter magazine and I am going to try and buy one somewhere.

Another vote here for the 36. Love that watermelon color.

Melissa, you never stop looking good in the things you make. I love this top on you! Thanks for the great review-- I'm gonna check out Ottobre.

Thanks for the review. I have that issue and never really paid attention to that particular pattern. I'll have to try it now :)

Great tee shirt. I'm always on the look out for a great fitting scoop neck and this one looks wonderful. Only prob....I don't have this issue. :(

The smaller one is so much cuter on you, Melissa. It shows off your figure, but still looks comfy!

Nice work - yours is so much more attractive than the one on the model.

Sew cute!! : ) My copy of Ottobre is on the way and I can't wait to try this top. Hope mine turns out as nice as yours!

Size 36 has my vote. It looks great.

Great fit and great color. I like the fact that it's a bit lower cut in the neckline than normal t's. Great job.

Fabulous fit, Melissa!!

I am happy I have purchased this issue. I have always loved knit tees and your pretty shirts make me really want some of these. You must have a beautiful wardrobe as all of your creations look great. I vote the 36 and tweak it a teeny bit if you find you want any more ease. It looks great on you.

Both tees look really nice on you--just a matter of the look you want to achieve. Ottobre really made a great set of tee shirt patterns.

Here I am behind in reading reviews! Another great t-shirt Melissa! Looks great! I agree, I like the smaller size, too--but maybe it is because you look so darn cute in that pink!! Great job!
