And here's the gallery!
Sucia usually wears a size 8 top. She's 5' 9" tall.
Bust: 36"
Waist: 30"
Hips: 38"
      
As usual, Sucia looks great in everything! The Leyfi is especially great on her with it's long sleeves that are exactly the right length for her. The Chiral Cardigan also fits Sucia well, though I think it could be slightly longer on her. The Cloisonne Jacket could be a size larger for Sucia. It's really not her style, though, so she thought she'd take a pass on it, even though she really liked the stitch pattern and the color combo. The swing coat on Sucia was nice and swingy, accentuating her height.
Audrey usually wears a size 12-14 top; she's 5' 2" tall.
Bust: 40½"
Waist: 38¾"
Hips: 45"
      
I love the swing coat on Audrey; she should make it right away! The Leyfi is a little too small though, and the sleeves are obviously too long. I don't think the neck is as flattering as it should be, either; maybe this just isn't the sweater for Audrey! (The color is great, though.) The Chiral cardi is wonderful on her, but I'm not sure about the color. Maybe in a green like the Leyfi. I think the Cloisonne just has too much going on at the bottom for Audrey. I'd like to see her in something that draws the eye up to her face. But in that same brown and blue combo, which is a wonderful color for Audrey's complexion.
Mellissa usually wears a size 10 top.
She's 5' 6" tall.
Bust: 41"
Waist: 35"
Hips: 38"
       That swing coat looks great on Melissa! It accentuates her busty yet slim frame perfectly! The Leyfi Pullover is great on her, too and I know she loved it when she saw it in the magazine. It's her color, and I think the size 36 is good on her. She could make the sleeves a bit shorter, but not much. I like Melissa in the simple stockinette Chiral, but I think the ruffle and ruching is too much for her bustiness. The color washes her out a bit, too—maybe this one is a pass for Melissa!
Jaime usually wears a size 4 top.
She's 5''6" tall.
Bust: 35"
Waist: 28"
Hips: 37"
      
Jaime is teeny tiny, and the 40-inch swing coat is just too big on her. The bold plaid overwhelms her little frame, too. The Chiral, however, is fantastic, and I love the whimsy that the ruffle adds to Jamie's outdoorsy style. The Cloisonne is pretty on Jaime, but I think it's too fussy for her style. The brown is beautiful on her, though. The Leyfi is a great sweater on Jaime, aside from the arms being too long. I think she could leave out a lace repeat on the sleeves to make them the right length. Love that green on her!
Dinah usually wears a size 10 top; she's
5' 11¾" tall.
Bust: 35½"
Waist: 32"
Hips: 41½" 
      
My favorites on Dinah are the Breacan Swing and the Cloissone Jacket. The Cloisonne is beautiful on her, and I think it fits her sense of style perfectly: classy. I love the colors on Dinah! The swing coat is fab, working well with her height, and the plaid is good—doesn't the swing coat look nice with black pants? I like the Chiral on Dinah, too, but I think it needs to be longer. She's got it pulled down to be the right length, but it loses some of the rouching; a little more length would restore just the right amount. The Leyfi has the same problem, it's too short for Dinah. The sleeves are the correct length, and the neck is good, but the body could use a good two or three more inches
Kathy usually wears a size 12 top. She's 5' 4" tall.
Bust: 38¾"
Waist: 33"
Hips: 40"
    

      
Kathy loved these two pieces and they loved her! My favorite on Kathy is the Leyfi. It fits her well and the neck is flattering. Those sleeves are too long, but that's an easy fix, right? The Cloisonne is beautiful on Kathy—those colors really look great. The sleeves could be a tad shorter, though, and I think a 42-inch bust would fit just right. The 38-inch sample cardi doesn't quite hang right in the front.
Patty usually wears a size 8 or 10 top.
She's 5' 4½" tall.
Bust: 36½"
Waist: 33"
Hips: 43½"
    
Patty rocked the cardigan look, didn't she?I especially love her in the Chiral cardi. The color, the fit, the length, everything works for Patty. The Cloisonne is great on her too; she liked the collar up, as did a couple of the other gallery gals. I really like it both ways—the more versatility the better, right? The sleeve length is perfect on Patty; I think she would need just one size up (to the 42") to get the front to close and hang properly. I do like the Breacan Swing on Patty, but I think it would be better in a more monochrome look like Eunny suggested in her sweater workshop on this piece. Maybe blues for Patty. And maybe a little shorter, too.
