Sounds wonderful, but please upload a photo or two as soon as you can. It looks as if you are the first to review this pattern so it would be interesting to others as well.

I tried a Folkwear pattern years ago and was overwhelmed by it. Reading your review, maybe I should dig the pattern out and try again. You made sense of it. I am always intrigued by their patterns and like the unique style.

to Kemish~~ Folkwear patterns set great store by authenticity [italicized]. The instructions will ask you to assemble things as they were assembled by methods traditional to the time and place where the garment originated. Your experience of modern patterns -especially patterns for novice sewers- is quite different from what Folkwear asks of you. If you are an experienced sewer and not passionate about authenticity, you can adapt Folkwear methods. But it can also enrich your skills to make shapes that characterize a time or place different from our own. Many Folkwear garments - because the styles predate modern shedding of modesty- call for lots of fabric; hence, expense. It's a good idea to make up a Folkwear pattern in muslin or old sheets before slicing into your four yards of wool tweed.

I would love to make this as well - how did it turn out in terms of the fit on your daughter?
