Great so far

I've only just started making this but so far the pattern is great. I love the wide range of options with this and think it will be one of those patterns that I'll make over and over again.

PE Patterns

PE patterns are great.They are well drafted and the introductory videos and the comprehensive instructions really contribute to getting a great result. I have recommended them to some friends who are beginner sewers and they have had really good results.
