Ashford Ashford writes: Nice designs. Stylish, yet not a fad. My latest sewing focus is to make several versions of a garment from the same pattern. So much of my time is spent on fitting a pattern. I want to use it more than once. Don't stop, Suede. Keep them coming. You got our attention.

I am teaching a couple of teen agers to sew and either the tunic or dress patterns would be great for them since they each just finished their first garment. One girl used a project runway pattern. I would give the tunic and dress patterns to them.
