Brilliant!!! You look wonderful and your construction is impeccable. Thanks for your tips. I especially appreciate the tip on the cuffs and the sizing info. I have not sewn a BWoF pattern yet. I have this copy and am encouraged to start.

I like to wear my newly made clothes around the house to check out the "wearability" factor too! This is a nice alternative to the standard sweatshirt. Thanks for the review.

Wow that's great...I've been ignoring WOF for the past few months, but I'll need to pick up this issue!

Wow, you're quick! I think the curvy fit of the top looks great on you! And wonderful job with the seam details.

Oh, this is wonderful! I eyed this one as soon as I got my issue. But I've been a little leary because of their choice in fabric, as I didn't know where to get something like this! So I'm so glad to see your review in fabric other than what the magazine called for --and yours looks AWESOME! I'm definately making it now --and will be referring to your review when I do! Thanks!

Oh, yours is much nicer than the one in the magazine. I love the contrast on the sleeves. Thanks for the tip on the sizing.

Beautiful sweatshirt on you! I don't really do "casual" clothes very well (I always think I look like I've just got out of bed) but this is lovely on you, I may just give it a go!

Great sweatshirt and very helpful review. Thanks! This is exactly the style of swetashirt I like to wear (with nothing underneath) so I must get this pattern.

What a great-looking sweatshirt. I'm going to go back and read the directions for this again. I made the pants from this group in a matte jersey and love them.

I love this top. I wish it came in my size.

Nice!! I like how the seams look because of the lighter color on the reverse side of the fabric. I hope to make this one, too.

I REALLY like the shape of this and the neckline. A very helpful review as well. Thanks so much for sharing your project.
