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.
