I never thought of using this pattern for a LOTR costume. Good idea.

Great review! I love reviews where the reviewer points out all the tricky bits - like you did for the sleeve and gusset. Very, very helpful to those of us who come after and why I just love PR. Thanks!

Yes, it is a fetching component. Definitely sounds like a draftin error on the gusset.

Lovely undergown. I love your choice of fabrics for the undergown and dress. Thanks for the heads up on the bicep width of the sleeve.
