I learned this tip way back when. When selecting patterns, look for the photographs, not the drawings, of the finished garment. Oft times, the drawings are how the designer HOPES they turn out and not how they REALLY are.

The line drawings give me the best idea of what the garment will be like.

Interesting advice! I love artistic drawings - they inspire me to get started. But you're probably right, photos are more accurate.

Absolutely agree! I've made things based on the drawing and even went by the suggested fabrics and the garment may not necessarily look or drape quite the same!
