My favorite article! Diane (& you?) picked great example pictures of the various patterns.

Oh my gosh - I'm flattered that there is a picture of my chunky body in there. I do really like the shirt and this has inspired me to go back and make another one.

Love the article - I keep checking on these favorite patterns - well written and shows many different body types. All of us at PR aren't the same little tiny body and this proves it.

Great job, Diane! Hm, I have 9 of those patterns; out of those 9 I've made 4....let's see, perhaps I'd better sign up for the Pattern Stash contest... :D

edited because I missed one of my 'have/have mades' amongst the three TNT's... which increases my 'have made' percentage very slightly...

Thanks for writing this, Diane. I really enjoyed it. Leslie, I'm a pattern-aholic. I own ten out of fourteen of those but I've only sewn up two of them so far. I'm working on a third, but I'd better get cracking!

I love these articles. You've really changed the way I sew.... These articles along with the extensive pattern reviews have helped me avoid disappointing mistakes. Which means I have more clothes in my closet and, yes, more space in my stash!!!! Time to go shopping!

Thanks.
