Great value
This kit gave me a lot of value for my dollars, and with the included bodice and skirt patterns, ideas are much easier to act on. I appreciate Meg's style, and found the pacing of the videos very good. I've done a lot of reading old pattern-making texts, and this set of videos has been helpful to visualize and summarize a lot of the knowledge I gleaned from those books, but in a much simpler and accessible way- thanks!
