It may be a while before I use this, but I have made other patterns from this designer, and I rely on her reputation. Her patterns are detailed and well-designed with expert instructions. Thank you!

I'll have to try it out, but I've waited a while to get this pattern - it's well put together, good instructions. I'll have to check the fit when I make it.
