    Possibly the easiest pattern to understand, ever. From the historiographical notes to the tiny details in the explanation of correct period stitching this pattern is well worth the money. You made the process fluid from paper, to fabric, to wearing. The historical accuracy and simplicity of the pattern cant be touched by any other pattern maker on the market. You cant go wrong when you buy from the best in the business. I will certainly be buying from RH again.
