Tami, I have this pattern too and think it is very good for thinner (t-shirt weight) knits. For sweater knits, I would go up a size or two as they need more ease. A finished garment in similar fabric makes a good reference. Stretch and Sew patterns are very well-drafted, but the fabric recommendations tend to be a bit vague. It always helps to look at the finished garment size in adition to the size chart. The gussets are such a good idea-Barbara Deckert's book is wonderful.

Tami, try the petite plus twin sweater set. You may have to lengthen, but the bust alteration is already done. You did a good job with the fix. Don't you love it when a wadder becomes wonderful?

Your outfit looks very nice on you. You did a great job of fitting the top with the gussets.

Your work on the gusset is impressive. I want to try a sweater, but am still too intimidated--yours looks so nice. I'm not clear why you are still looking for a twin set pattern--too difficult to fit this one, I guess?
