Has anyone else seen this new pattern company? He/they have a lot of cool corset patterns in addition to some fancy, high end dress designs, too.

I think my favourites are:

Halter neck dress


Audrey dress


Skater dress


Everything's a pdf download (yay!) and you can even purchase their slopers, too.

Has anyone tried these yet?

I just checked out his website(s)! He is very talented. I wish I were younger and could wear some of his fashions.

I love the button dress. I have thousands of buttons- and maybe I can find a use for them.

The skater dress is cute, very trendy. My torso is too long for the RTW versions so I would love to make one for myself that doesn't look so awkward

I just took a peak and while I like many of his styles his sizing is very limited.
Has anyone printed out one of his patterns? How much paper does it take?
I would love to read a review from pattern printing to construction to a photo of the finished garment.
I love the skater dress.
I was thinking of just adding a gathered skirt to the bottom of a tank top!
I purchased 4 tank tops online, my DD brought them when she visited ( I live in La Paz Baja California Sur). I received two each of two colors instead of four different colors, so I thought I would sacrifice one and see if my idea worked.
Anyway, I would love to hear more about Ralph Pink.

Obviously this designer still lives in the world of rail thin models. No sizing over 14.

So, I just discovered this guy and I have to say that I love his designs! I just finished the bralette tube dress and the fit is perfect. Like a glove, really. His instructions are so detailed that even a pattern rated difficult can become easy.

The only real negative is that his patterns tend to come in only a few small sizes, but they aren't hard to grade. He does cater to a certain figure that is unfortunately popular on the runway. It should be mentioned that from my experience with his bralette tube dress, there isn't much ease. He has stated that he loves the female figure and it really shows in his designs. His stuff is real fashion forward.

In my opinion, the best figure suited for his patterns, with the least modifications, has around a .7 hip to waist ratio. You can easily grade up from the smaller sizes he commonly offers.

If I were 20kg lighter I'd make that halter neck dress in a flash, but alas...

I'm fairly sure that his corset patterns are based on Norah Waugh's book - digitised and then graded.
