On the back of the Vogue pattern is a set of diagrams, a triangle, an inverted triangle, a rectangle and an hourglass thingy. Are these body types? So if the pattern has these diagrams then it's recommended for those body types??

That's my understanding - now you have to figure out your body type:bg:

Cool, I didn't know that. I'll have to look and see what is on the patterns I have. I'll be curious to see what body types they're recommended for.

We all have weights in our bottoms. We are the weeple people...we wobble but we don't fall down.
