    Liesl & Co Classic Shirt

    Posted by Shirley on 24th Mar 2019

    First indie pattern I have used and I am more a confident beginner than an intermediate sewer, that said, I was amazed at the quality of the pattern and the instructions, far better than the big companies. It has taken me three days so far but another day and I should have it done; nothing wrong with the pattern, just my inexperience; most difficult thing I have tackled to date but very much worth it. Also brilliant, also has pieces up to a D cup so no fba, always a bonus!!! Would recommend.
