Great designs and nice embellishments. LOVE the CD of patterns. The things that held me back from a five star rating were the photos. The overly done fabric patterns were distracting and made seeing the project clearly very difficult. In the case of the Classic Dress Coat, if I hadn't seen it done up in plainer fabrics, I would have ignored the pattern. The Little Lady Coat gives a nice clear picture. I think if the author had shown the projects in simple or plain fabrics and then shown them as they are in the book it would have been better. Overall there are some very nice pieces and the CD for the patterns makes this a winner. All read

My only disappointment was that it didn't include the Charlotte Pattern, which I thought it did. Will purchase separately
