I'll be back to review more when I've used more of the pieces. So far I have only used the little wrap skirt pattern. Since it was a knit fabric, it could not have been easier since I didn't need to line it or finish the edge. It made the cutest little skirt for dance class. My only problem was that I wanted it to have ribbon ties. The pattern calls for a little snaps to close this skirt, so I had to come up with my own ties. Unfortunately, I didn't make the ribbon quite long enough so it works but doesn't tie where I expected. Totally my error, nothing to do with the pattern.
