    This is the first skirt I’ve made and truth be told I’m not much of a skirt wearer. But I wanted to try something with a bit of swish to see if I liked the style. And I like it a lot. The paper pattern and instructions came in a practical wallet for storage and it even had a cute label to sew into the skirt! The instructions were very clear and there is a helpful video to go with the instructions so it’s great if, like me, you are learning how to sew. In fact with the video it’s like being in a virtual sewing class. If you want to grow your sewing confidence then I can recommend this pattern.

    Lovely easy to follow pattern and instructions with great results. I didn’t use the YouTube videos but it is handy having the references in the instructions for any of the more tricky bits. Thank you Donna, I will be making more 😀

    Lovely blouse to make and I am a novice . Was really pleased to see how easy it was to do the sleeves. Really comfortable and stylish too. Thanks Donna for such straightforward instructions.

    I loved making this coat, I started with the written instruction which are great but I loved loved the YouTube tutorial. I didn’t pick up the instructions after that. No need to wonder ‘how to’ the tutorial explains it all. I bought the standard pattern for the coat and found the make was bob on to the measurements. I had to make some adjustments to the sleeve as I am a little short but left the length as is as I wanted long. All in all it took me 15 hours to make.

    I had the size:me’d pattern for making these. I did this as with trousers it is all about the fit and I am quite short. Standard patterns always have to be fiddled with – which I hate doing (#lazysewer) The written instructions were easy to follow. However, there is a tutorial which Donna presents brilliantly as she is a great teacher/explainer. If you’re buying the made to measure patterns, you MUST follow the tutorial on how to complete the measuring DON’T wing it.

    Really easy to follow pattern. The YouTube is incredibly helpful. I bought the pattern, fabric and notions pack. The fabric is beautiful and sews really nicely. The finished dress is fabulous and I will definitely be making another soon.
