I took a look at this review after you told me that this is the sweater set pattern. Very nice. I may have to buy this pattern.

Why don't I have this pattern? How negligent of me. Great review and wonderful motivation for yet another pattern purchase. Thanks...I guess.

Pretty! The snaps make it look modern and fun. Have we been introduced to your fit model yet? Does she have a name? For CS & twin needle tunneling, you can try wooly nylon underneath (bobbin) and/or loosen the needle tension. Maybe the sleeve insertion techniques are shown to let people know there are two ways to do it, like a choice? But a KS-esque sewing course (Method 1 or 2) would have been more clear if that was the aim.

Another great review, Debbie. Thanks. I'm hoping to get back to working on finding a TNT T-shirt pattern!

Terrific fabric! Those vibrant autumnal colours suit you so well, and what good luck to have found perfectly matching FOE in your stash!

Wow, Debbie, as usual, wonderful review & terrific results! Your twin-set is really beautiful & the detailed review with lots of photos make me want to try this pattern really soon! On another note, I certainly missed your beautiful smile in the photo! I'm glad the reason for the somber expression is truly a temporary condition! (Been there, done that!)
