      Beautifully Drafted

      This shirt was a joy to sew. The detailed instructions were very helpful, especially when making a nearly perfect collar for the fist time!

      Me encantan sus patrones. El nivel de cuidado, mimo y atención al detalle los sitúa muy por encima de la media de otras marcas indies de patronaje.
      La camisa es un éxito total y he aprendido mucho durante la confección.
