- Jul 28, 2006Fiddly but easy. Everything I've ever done from Truly Victorian has
gone together directly and simply, which is to say that their pattern
drafting and grading is first-class. But (of course) if you're doing
Victorian, it's elaborate and different than today's cut. I'd rate
their patterns at about a 3 to 4, certainly no more _difficult_ than
a commercial pattern from the fabric store.
They have a period fitting protocol, which works beautifully - use
it! And remember that it'll feel somewhat different when finished
than you're used to since the cut is different than you're used to,
regardless of the different under- and shape-wear (ie, corsetry and
bustle) which are essential to the look.
