Love the tie neckline especially! ! Great job ladies! !


The whole family! BrothersYount, you are awesome. But those are all beautiful!

Universally flattering–everyone looks marvelous! Good work ladies :-)


I have just discovered your blogs (I’m a new sewer) and wanted to say thank you.

Something I find daunting is choosing a pattern when I don’t know if the finished object will suit me. Pattern illustrations on models are a nightmare: how can I tell how _I_ would look; I’m 6 feet tall and a bit on the large side, not slim and delicate! Especially as the clothes I’ve been buying in the last couple of years have been shapeless and awful!

Seeing other people’s projects is really encouraging. So many different looks and all these ladies look fantastic in their new dresses.

Time for me to try this ….
