    Your patterns are original and there is a variety. They reflect what a young people are wearing and can relate to. I love the PVC patterns. They can be made with items easy to shop for.

    Your patterns are very well written and easy to follow. I have had so much fun sewing clothes and making things with PVC pipe.

    Love everyone of the patterns I have tried, there are very few I don’t have. Keep up the good work. My dolls too are some of the best dressed, sewing doll clothes is a wonderful hobby I wish more people could enjoy.

    I love your patterns and have quite a few. I enjoy the pvc patterns the most because no one else has anything like them and I feel like I’m introducing the world to a new idea when I make them for my dolls for a show.

    I love how easy and unique these patterns are. I make 18″ cloth dolls and I love being able to make the furniture and clothes so my dolls and their accessories are all homemade and unique. Thanks so much for these great patterns.

    Congratulations on three years of a wonderful business. Your patterns are so well done and so cute. I have made them for my great nieces, but they are outgrowing their dolls. The outfits are so much fun to sew, I keep sewing and know I will find a doll to wear them.
