Additional Notes

This paper sewing pattern includes all pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with illustrations.


The online sew a long was my savior!


Clear construction instructions. Would totally recommend this pattern.


It was easy to follow and sew up. I only had a bit of difficulty following the drawings/instructions for the collar.
