    What a great tutorial. I love the front angled zip seam, which would be more figure flattering for me, I think. And what a great thing to be able to confidently change a pattern I have that I already know fits me! Thank you Threads and Angela!

    WOW! It's like a foray into feature films, all about fashion. Thank you for this!

    Angela is so encouraging, and fearless (she the sewing world's Karen Allen in "Raiders of the Lost Ark").

    Your directorial style comes through in every shot.

    A fan from way back
