If you have not read the interview on PR with Elizabeth Pursley of Sewn Square One Interview
please take a few minutes to do so and visit the site. I was most interested in seeing if the pattern instructions were indeed made for a beginner so I emailed Elizabeth. I got a return email from her in the same day, plus a page from the instructions of the skirt I was interested in. The instructions read like a detailed learn to sew manual. I am impressed as my daughter is just learning to sew and lives too far from me for me to teach her. The patterns are truly geared to today's young person who wants to learn to sew. The detail in the instructions is truly amazing and refreshing since most of the pattern companies seem to be going down the road of minimal details.

Those are some cute patterns. Great instructions are a bonus. Sewing those would provide a great experience.

I too am impressed. I liked the patterns, and I had not yet heard of the company until the interview the other day. TFS!

I received my patterns very quickly to the UK and have started tracing the Go Anywhere dress. Just a heads up for anyone else hoping to use this pattern.

On my pattern the bust, waist and hip are not marked and there is no finished garment measurements are given.

The size medium has a bust given as 35"-37". I traced the medium but thought it looked a bit small over the bust so I measured the finished garment measurement. (Not easy with the number of pieces.) The bust measurement is 37.5", if my bust was 35" this would give 2.5" ease which is OK. My bust is 37" so this gives me only half an inch ease. Not enough for a woven dress.

I love the look of the dress and may continue with it but it has made me feel a bit grumpy towards it.
