Well, I thought the same with the Sugar N Cream. I had bought a cone with the intention of using it for a tank top. I tried it for this tank top, and I thought the gauge was about right, but it was coming out WAY too big. Since the pattern is pretty specific, I didn't dare to tweak it. I was thinking maybe it was because it was all cotton and I need something that would be stretchier? But I really don't know. Thanks for the help! I'll look into the Fixation and the TLC Cotton Plus.
