    This pattern is awesome. The doublet was easy to fit, and the patterns make sense. Also, the hosen pattern is 100% pure win. It only took me two scrap-mock-ups to get a happy fit. I have NEVER had that before. You will never get a straight-off-the-paper fit, but seriously getting a perfectly fitted pair of hose is simple with the basic shape provided in this pattern. All you need is an assistant with a vague idea of what they’re doing (I trained my sewing-inept boyfriend in ten minutes), some pins and some fabric-chalk or a pen.
