    Reviewed by on 09/01/2014
    No problem with delivery on a digial pattern, but I have always gotten patterns quickly from your team. I am extremely happy with how the alder turned out, I made it in a wonderful armani linen and will make another with sleeves soon. I'm so pleased with the excellent pattern drafting making for smooth effortless precision sewing with wonderful wearabilty. I made a straight size -0-, perhaps I will take in the hips slightly next time.
