    Ladies, thanks for the feedback. A couple of comments:

    I expect this will be a 3/4 hidden zip, no elastic jersey. Hidden zips work best with a graphic design, as they don't "chop" the image in half. There's very little out there in full-length hidden zip, so we'll need to do 3/4.

    Also, as much as I understand that some folks like hi-viz safety yellow, that's not really the direction we're looking to go in.

    And longer short sleeves that will actually cover the tops of arm warmers. No little cap sleeves!

    I love gripper elastic. My favorite jersey has gripper elastic in the back and is elastic-free in the front- stays put without riding up.

    I am not sure why she would track that, it would be senseless.

    I like elastic. I don't like elastic. I like full zip and I like 3/4, I even like 1/2 zip. Pretty much a good cut will make me happy and elastic won't bug me in a good cut.

    We have a wide variety of forms here
    What's form fitting for one is strangulation for another

    I never said all jerseys must have elastic..... (and I think you all implied that *none* should by answering to Liza that yes, she is the only one who still wants elastic ((NOT)). I definitely still want the option.

    Thanks, I was able to open the Illustrator 8 link fine. Don't know why the CS2 version doesn't work for me (I have both CS2 and CS3). The pdf version works as well.

    Mimi- I would really like to see you try your hand at something with that painting.

    Eden- I really like your first entry, did you say you are working on another? I didn't know you had hidden talent like that!

    Eden and Bat

    I like your designs a lot.

    I'd love to see Bat's design w/different color choices (black background but w/other neon colors around the estrogren).

    I'm too much of a Luddite to figure out how to make & submit my own design!

    artist

    I need some artistic help! I know what I want to put on the jersey but I can't draw it.

    I'd like to make a jersey with an international theme

    I like all three you put up, maybe you have another career to think about. FWIW I took Graphic Design as part of my major and found it to be one the hardest classes I took. My brother is the artist, I lost a lot of sleep over that class!

    On the women's club cut - it will have no elastic in the hem, a slightly shorter length, and will flare a bit at the hips. The bust will be adjusted slightly to better accomodate our curves. I tried on prototype #2 on Monday and it fits really nicely. Sizing info can be found at www.voler.com.
    This is hands-down the nicest most flattering jersey I own.
