It's been a while now since I completed these patterns for a wedding I attended in May and I thought I had better send you a pic or two as I promised. Even with the serious time constraint (only 3 weeks) for completing my polonaise TV410 I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with the outcome, everyone was astonished that I made it myself. My grandmothers Jacket TV 428 was the first pattern of yours I had ever used, she couldn't believe how well it fit because she is VERY short waisted and can't seem to ever get anything to fit right, making the adjustments were so easy using your instructions. The adjustments on mine were slightly more difficult but it came out beautifully all the same. I love that you include ideas for trimming the patterns as it makes such a difference in the look of the dress. I wish you could see the back of the dresses, they looked so fabulous. Perhaps when we see the pictures from the wedding there may be a pic or two of the backs as the photographers were just mezmerized by the details and we think they got a few shots of the back. Otherwise, I am hoping to don them again next year for the Banning Museum Weekend and will for sure get more photos then. Time to start halloween costumes soon...can't wait!! Until next time...happy sewing!
