-I enjoyed this book and all the different styles and patterns it had [...] instead of having patterns to trace, each skirt has a pattern with instructions for drafting. This is perfect for someone who likes to jump right into working with the fabric instead of doing lots of pattern-work first.- --Feather's Flights blog
