    Judith, this is such a help!! Thank you! I'll probably watch it a few times, just to make sure I caught all the useful details.

    I have scans of all my pattern envelopes, so it'll be easy to make sized prints of the fashions. I'll make my croquis photos in the most common angled-model poses, and I'm good to go.
