Julia, I am desperate for some new curtains and may have to cave and make some! I think the New Yorker, with its Asian styling, would be good on a petite figure. The waistline would probably be closer to your actual waistline than it is to mine. Just be sure not to make it too big. Good luck!

Amanda, great review! Thanks. Clothes really are _much_ more interesting to sew than curtains. :-) You're choosing great patterns -- I would never have looked twice at the Sausalito top, but yours are very attractive. Part of that may be that you're tall-ish and well proportioned... Do you think the New Yorker jacket would work on a 5'2" slightly pear-shaped person?

This is an intriguing pattern. Looks very nice on you.

Thanks. I just gave this jacket the 'all day wear' test and I have to passed with flying colors! Totally comfy, never came unwrapped, and the only thing that wrinkled was the tie!

Something is wrong with the Yahoo photo site. I'm trying to access it to post another review, and am running into the same message.
