I don't know how I missed this review. What a treat to have your teenagers endorse your sewing so enthusiastically. This pattern is perfect for you.

Thanks, Patsijean, I'll check this out. I think I've seen that book before.

This outfit is quite lovely on you. Regarding the cowl neckline, Claire B. Shaeffer offers some help in her book "High-Fashion Sewing Secrets." Pages 134 & 135 provide instructions for making a Cowl stay. She says that she had trouble with the drape too, until she started sewing in a stay that keeps the neckline where it should be. I just checked and the book is still available. Lots of information in the book. By the way, if you go to by way of the Elephant Sanctuary website ( Elecam page, donates 5% to the sanctuary. I am not affiliated with them, but Tennessee does have an excellent sanctuary for elephants recovering from neglect and abuse. The elephants are delightful to watch. Quite relaxing as they are not inclined to rush everywhere.

Hello to you, Frosty772. I am also in western MT. I quilt, too, but I don't meet many fashion-sewing ladies around these parts. It's fun to see the terrain in people's pictures and recognize familiar ground!

Your outfit looks wonderful !! You did a fantastic job. When I looked at your photo I thought (after admiring your outfit first of course) "That looks like MT. Then I clicked back and saw that you are from there!! Im in the Western part of that state !! Hello to you !!

A beautiful garment - cute kids.

Thanks again, to all. Lhan, in response to your question, yes I think the top does cling a bit. Even though I am thin I would prefer that my every contour not be shown in detail, so I did notice this. Oh well. I think the busy print definitely distracts the eye from elastic lines and such.

Beautiful outfit. I've made this skirt twice and just love it too. I've made view A top without the tie and just love it. I tried view C top, but it was too deep for me. Billie

Great outfit. Don't tell me you had this picture taken after a day of cooking for a huge family gathering! You look so calm and lovely.

I have to second (or third) the motion. The outfit and you are definitely beastly. (that's a new expression for me! I love it)

Great outfit and great backdrop!
Lhan said... (4/16/06 11:25 PM) Reply
This is a lovely outfit. And against such a backdrop ..... Unfair, really. This type of skirt design is both very easy and very stylish I find - difficult to get a better combination! Does it cling much? Would the total look work on those of us with lumpier bits do you think?

Hey, I wanna be a beast too!! I have this pattern and have been toying with making it and have hesitated due to the reviews here. I think I'll go for it!! It looks fabulous on you!!!

Thanks for the kind comments. Laura, I wish I could give you a good answer on the sizing. It has been over a year since I sewed with a "Big 4" pattern, and since then have lost quite a bit of weight. I really didn't know what size I would be in these patterns now. I cut the 12 based on my body measurements, and I was very satisfied with the fit. Looking at the picture now (somehow, the camera tells me things the mirror doesn't) I think the trim fit is accentuated by the drape of the fabric.

Great looking outfit and it looks wonderful on you.

You Beast you! The comments from the kids are the most unabashedly should be proud. Did you find the pattern runs true to size, or did you cut it in a smaller size? I love the trim fit.

Excellent comments from your children! It looks great! I've looked at this pattern before--I think I might give it a try!
