    You did such a great job with this pattern. I bought the pattern because Gertie drafted it, but have not really decided what I wanted to do with it. This is excellent inspiration!

    Fantastic! I have the pieces cut out for this pattern in a raspberry crepe-back satin, but I just haven’t gotten around to making it yet. >_<
