    poor fit on the model, not inspirational at all

    Whew, if you want to emphasize your saddle bags, it looks like the first pattern is for you! My rule is, if the model looks fat, there's no hope for me.

    Normally, I adore Marcy Tilton's designs and fabrics, but this one is a man-repeller if I ever saw one.
