Gorgeous add-on

I used this upgrade on the traveller cape to make a cranky bear costume for bookweek. The instructions were great and I love all the images that come with it showing you what you need to do. Thanks for a great upgrade!


I used this pattern, along with the Pathfinder Vest and Dragon Add-On documents, to create my son's dragon Halloween costume. I was very pleased with the results and I felt very accomplished once I was done. The project is by far the most complicated thing I personally have done in my sewing journey. I would say I am an advanced beginner, or maybe intermediate, but that's not based on anything other than my own judgement call. That being said, the patterns really helped my through this since they were so clear, detailed, and pretty easy to understand. I was under a little pressure since I was getting this done the weekend before Halloween, which I don't recommend when taking on a new project. ;) But like l said, I was able to complete the project with little stress (given the circumstances), which I would largely attribute to a great pattern!
