Customer Reviews

poor instructions Review by Lisanne
Rating

None of these are true beginner patterns using the simplest possible processes.
A beginner needs a good reference book for help with every step.

Instructions either minimal - nowhere near enough guidance for people who haven’t done a technique before.
Or full of errors - upsetting for beginners, who don’t know what’s correct.

Anda dress, Jenny skirt, Fatina dress : Instructions have errors but do include pictures and seam allowances, print shop pattern has cutting layouts, website has project photos but barely better instructions.
Pleat front dress, tank top, blouse : errror free but minimal instructions with no pictures, no seam allowances.
Pants : relatively good instructions with pictures.

Best sequence for learning : Anda dress; pants; front pleat dress; Jenny skirt; Fatina dress; tank top; blouse.
