    May I ask what bra size you are? That would help me answer best!

    What the hell is going on with that quilted coat? Everything about it is so…wrong. The shoulders don’t fit at all, and neither does the rest of the thing. Layered? Why would I want a jacket to lo…

    How much will the Ebook cost? Also, what if I want a hard copy of the book, but would rather have the patterns in PDF? Can the patterns be available for purchase alone or codes included in the hard…

    I would add the bias tape after inserting the zipper. That way, you can hide the extra part of the zipper at the top (those ends that extend past the zipper pull) under the bias binding. It makes f…

    Hi! I created this pattern from measurements and guestimation. All fabrics pictured are non-stretch. I wouldn’t recommend anything terribly stretchy (unless it’s woven) for the bodice because I can…

    I actually have not blogged about it. I believe there is another pattern floating around here (check the free patterns; it’s on like the 3rd page or something and is pretty obvious which one) that …

    Wow, wow, wow! That’s one of the most beautiful dresses I’ve seen! I love the lace and the buttons. Also, the last picture is so perfect! It looks like it captures absolutely everything I’d want ou…

    Good luck! I’m actually using it for my costume :))

    Yeah, I’ve found that the lower the back, the harder it is to keep it up without straps. It you want to go strapless, I suggest keeping the back straight across.
