I'd LOVE to get feedback about costumes you've created using these patterns. Please tell me how you managed, let me know any hints I should include in instructions, and maybe even send a picture! I guarantee that I will only use it to satisfy my personal curiosity, but never publish it unless you expressly consent.
Kathleen has been so kind as to let me have some photographs
of dresses she made with patterns from this very page:
Kids, Mum & kids, plaid dress. Thank you so much, Kathleen! You did a great job.
