Great pattern, very easy to follow. An amazing tutorial complete with a few visuals comes with it. The whole thing is so well thought out and thorough. I’m a beginner with sewing larger items so it is absolutely perfect. I’m so pleased with the quality of everything. I can’t wait to begin making my costume! Thank you so much!!

Great pattern. Very easy to follow and the end result was a great replica and of very good craftsmanship. I've never sewn from a pattern in my life and had no problems.

Thank goodness I'm an experienced seamstress because the instructions on this were all over the place and not very organized. I wound up ditching the pattern with the exception of the hood, which was helpful, but still too big. In the end, I adlibbed the cape for my funeral version of this cosplay. It was a success with grasping the attention of Bruce Miller, director & Writer of the Handmaid's Tale as well as Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd) who was absolutely a wonderful and terrifying lady at NY Book Con. Thanks anyway.
