Great pattern choice Review by Mel
Rating

I'm really eager to get into this one. The pattern pieces and instructions are really clear and she gives lots of ideas on how to create the "poetry" element (which is the thing that caught my attention). Not sure my hand embroidery is up to the task so may be trying the fabric pen option for the first go. I really like how the skirt is constructed, allowing for customization of the poetry panel.
