I must tell you how happy I am with your directions and patterns. I have been doing historical events for about 20 years now of various era(Renaissance, Victorian England, Civil War USA etc). I am sooo impressed with your patterns I have been recommending you to all my friends, even the ones who have been costumers for years longer than me! I have used Past Patterns, Folkwear and various other historical pattern makers and none worked as smoothly as yours! Here is a picture of me in your TV400 day bodice. I added a collar and left the bottom open to form the open points you see but otherwise I left it unchanged and I just love it! This is a sepia picture but the dress is a beautiful green velvet with brown and gold velvet trim. I definitely will continue to recommend you to all my sewing friends. Thanks!!!!
