    Gorgeous pattern

    Hi again Amaya,
    The Etta was a great pattern. I sized down 1 size and it is still nicely oversized without looking too big. The wrap is sufficient. I used two beautiful cottons from merchant and mills that I purchased from here.


    Wonderful range of patterns at patterns scissors frock. Looking forward to making this and visiting the store in person one day.
