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!

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.

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.

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.

Size 36 has my vote. It looks great.

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!

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

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

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. :(

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

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

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.

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.

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

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!

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.
