    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

    Very happy camper August 26, 2015
    Reviewer: Saskia from Victoria, Australia  
    Very swift despatch and quick delivery to Australia. The pattern instructions are clear and easy to follow, with only one slight confusion encountered so far and easily resolved with basic-to-intermediate sewing knowledge. The fit of the unadjusted pattern is far and away the best I've ever encountered in a commercially produced pattern - bravo! I did discover some slight damage to a couple of the pattern pieces when I opened the envelope - some shredding from the folding process, and blurring of a couple of printed lines - but all in all I'm extremely happy with this product and would definitely recommend to others.
