Currently, this is the group I purchase the most patterns for; it is marvellous to find so many wonderful ideas for Curvies! As soon as I saw this one, it was in my basket.
This pattern, Level Up!, is fantastic for the step by step detail that has been provided, as I'm sure others have commented. It encourages those new to the craft and is a great starting point for those who are more experienced and/or creative. I should also mention that I hand sew many of the outfits I've made from your other patterns, despite having a sewing machine, so one need not be discouraged if they don't have a machine at their disposal.
Thank you for your work and generosity!
I have been a fan of RAD for over a year, probably two years, now. I have to say, this is EXACTLY what I have wanted. This pattern is the tutorial that shows me the designers magic art to making the clothes look amazing. I love the economic conservative style of the usual patterns, when printing, but sewing for 1/6 scale is really hard for me and this tutorial has given me hope to try again! YOU should try it, and don't give up, sewing for dolls is hard, but you'll feel so accomplished when you get it!
