5 of 5 Love your patterns December 4, 2016
Reviewer: Zelda Gilbert from HENDERSON, NV United States  
I needed to update a Titanic era tea dress with a new under-blouse.  I had used this pattern originally but lost it long ago.  Nice to be able to resupply and get myself set up.

5 of 5 new format January 31, 2016
Reviewer: Judith Miller from Kinsley, KS United States  
I am very,very, very pleased with your new pattern & instruction format. At times I found it difficult to follow correct size cutting lines on the tissue patterns. The new booklet is also much easier to keep organized than the numerous pri.ted sheets. So much great information for locating necessary pattern pieces & determining correct size. The reference notes for period correct construction with extant examples is a great resource. Truly a superb product.
Very satisfied customer, Judy
