Hi there I used my own design, part of the top i used a bit from a vintage pattern from the states, but i mostly do my own and then transfer in calico before fitting on the dressmakers dummies

Hi Jeanette brown I googled and did some searching and just by luck I guess, but was very impressed with the service I received.
