“I wanted to let you know I made another dress from pattern class, it’s an evening gown with a boat neck front and v back and bell sleeves and I’ve worn it twice now. I’m now working on making the boot cut jeans, and successfully put the front fly in. Thanks for the class, it was awesome.”  – Karen C, Fall 2013 pattern intro class
