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.
