Wow, you did a great job with the fitting and sewing. I wish I had the patience, talent, and knowledge to do garment construction.

An excellent review! Your garment is beautiful and nicely fitted. You hit on all the questions I tend to have about a pattern: amount of ease, construction, etc. Just wonderful to read!
