    ditavee commented on the forum topic Does size really matter that much?

    Terminology aside, as I disagree when people use the phrase ‘real women’ – as we all are ‘real women’, the flip side of this argument is that any woman should be able to choose what she wears, and …

    ditavee commented on the forum topic rating?

    I think this whole thread shows the various reasons that rating for projects just doesn’t work…

    I’m the first to admit I’m not an expert seamstress, but anything I post on here is something I’m …

    I’m drafting a short sleeved cotton overcoat at the moment for those still quite cool evenings here in Auckland, I have a lovely royal blue cotton and it’s going to be unlined, just enough to keep …

    ditavee commented on the forum topic Editing/deleting discussion posts

    I’ll add myself to the list of “please give the edit button backers” – I’m quite shocked that it’s not here – I’d rather have that than the report as inappropriate button… I figured it was a bug …

    ditavee commented on the forum topic rating?

    I’m also an anti-rater – in fact there’s a whole other thread on this on a different part of the site. I’m even MORE anti rating now that I know you don’t even have to be logged in (and thus I take…

    ditavee commented on the forum topic Patterns missing from account & other account problems

    I’m so glad you posted this ed2122 or I would never have checked my own account! I’m missing more than half the patterns I’ve purchased. The missing patterns are:

    Amanda (small)

    ditavee commented on the forum topic Who is rating my projects, please.

    I agree that ratings should be kept private, but I am strongly unhappy there being any form of rating at all for projects. A pattern or technique rating helps you determine the quality of that befo…

    ditavee commented on the forum topic Project Runway!

    OK, on second reflection I liked Eppersons, great shape and workmanship. Irina’s was OK (but how many times have we seen that exact same dress) Johnny’s was nice but missed terribly on the colour, …
