I like the way you lengthened the cami. I think you did a great job with this. Thanks for the tips.

I enjoyed reading the review. I agree—the bra sizing required a lot of tweaking for a B on a petite frame. (Worth the effort IMHO.)

Love the set and this is a lovely picture.

Your set looks great. It's good that you are able to redraft what didn't work, as it sounds as if that pattern really didn't work for you at all. Thanks for the review.

Looks great and you are braver than me being on the web in your undies! Well done.

Very cute set. I like the way you lengthened the top - it looks more comfy and practical than the pattern drawing.

You have altered this pattern so much, it really isn't the same pattern. Well done, excellent review.

All your alterations resulted in a very cute set!

I made this set and liked the way it looked. It sits in my dresser unused though... You're right about the panty. I didn't like the crotch seam either, it was uncomfortable. Can you include a pic of the gusset you added? I'd like to add a gusset to mine and see if it would make it wearable. Your set looks good and would be perfect as a camisole under sheers.

you look so cute, thank you for the info about resize the cups.

I never buy Kwik Sew patterns any more because they NEVER fit without TONS of alterations. They run super big, in my opinion. They do have great instructions though. Good job making yours work - you're so cute in your lounge suit!

Thank you for the very detailed and well observed comments. I do agree that close-fitting, stretchy panties, and even leggings, are just a lot more comfortable with a little gusset rather than a seam in the middle of the crotch.

Very good review! And I agree, this panty view isn't all that comfortable with that center seam.

Thanks so much for your review! Your set looks great, and your detailed information about fit and comfort is so valuable!
