What are you most proud of? Sewing the kick pleat. it took forever for me to figure it out. And i'm proud of the pattern too. I drafted my own from scratch since i live far from US and the provided pattern would take awhile to reach me. And it turned out great. Didnt really imagine it to fit me well. But it did so i didnt have to make major adjustments and i also skipped the muslin part hehehe, my paper pattern served as my muslin. ;)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It might get frustrating at times but just keep stitching. :) Susan's class is easy to follow and she covered everything. You will learn to appreciate and love handstitching after taking her class...I DID! :) .

I paid for the class and was supposed to get the pattern in the mail, but have never received it.

Same here, but when I wrote to Craftsy and complained, they shipped another pattern which arrived in Australia about 3 weeks later.

Hi Sewhidley. I still have to check mine with our local post office if they have it. Usually they dont home deliver international packages in my area. I always claim it from our local postal office. I hope you get your pattern soon. :)
