Pattern Review

These are the items that I have made using other peoples patterns. Even though I enjoy making clothes on the fly and don't always follow a pattern to the letter I do believe the first time you make something using someone else's pattern that you should do it according to the authors directions. This allows me to learn new methods from authors who know more than me and it also helps me get to know the anatomy of a pattern so I know better the next time how to tweak it or modify it for a new creation. 

I hope you find these useful and welcome questions and feed back. Please leave a comment and I will do my best to respond as quickly as possible.
