The quality of this art is fantastic! We purchased the clip art to use for wedding invitations, and they turned out amazing. Thank you so much, so happy with the purchase!

Absolutely gorgeous pattern - my favorite so far of all the vintage patterns I've made! I had to sew it up right away and it's gorgeous. It was missing the sleeve piece, however. Quick shipping!
