Q&A with Pats Design

DaisyandFlorrie asked:
Your dress is beautiful! Fit, color, everything, lovely work.
Pats Design answered:
Thank you so much. I was rather timid when I began this dress; I have never done this type of detail cause I really did not know how. I learned so much, and SK is such a wonderful teacher.
LeslieAx asked:
Wow! How did you do the 3/4 length sleeve adjustments? They are perfect!
Pats Design answered:
That is one feature that was truly important to me; it's definitely my style I like most. I tapered the sleeves from the elbow dart to the cuff. Thank you for noticing!

Pats Design answered:
Thank you, it's comments like yours that make me know I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. Susan Khalje is a truly great teacher, and I look forward to learning more from her.
