I haven't started it yet but I did take a class from someone who has made one. It's detailed, the pattern is mostly very good. I learned a few tips. However it is a complex pattern.
I downloaded this pattern. I am a very experienced sewer but found this pattern's instructions frustrating. Some of the pictures were less than clear. I have put this project aside for a while until I feel I can do the unpicking required to get to a place to move forward. Usually these are really great patterns and I am thrilled with the results.
