Marvelous pattern November 4, 2016
Reviewer: Joy Fowler from West Harrison, IN United States  
Very thorough and period correct with many options.  Having all sizes in one was new to me and a little overwhelming regarding layout and choosing pieces but I got through it ok.  Having finished pictures out of A, B, C order was initially confusing too.  Wish you'd included pagoda sleeve, yardage for contrasting fabric view and a few more term definitions such as reference point for beginning of finished length.  That said, all my glitches are minor.  Pattern is awesome!  Do you have or know of someone who has a collected hints for period sewing manual?  I've seen lots of info but would be nice to have it in one place for handy reference.
