Thank you, amarok!! That's Eru, one of my stuffed stegosauruses Smiley She has a brother named Stanley. When I get home I'll post a picture of the two of them! (they're DIY, so it would be appropriate to debut them here)

**update**: I made a post for Stanley and Eru in the Toys, Dolls, and Playthings forum. Please check them out of if you're interested!

And thank you to everyone who has left such kind comments! It's my goal to pursue dress-making with renewed passion, and your comments have been really encouraging Smiley

So cute!  You inspired me to pick this book up from the library, even though I have a fashion design degree and know how to do patternmaking/draping.  I haven't gotten to read much of it yet, but I'm curious as to what it will say!

I'm so happy that people have been interested in this book because of my post! I have to warn you, though, that the pattern drafting probably isn't as perfect or technical as if it were taught from a textbook. But I think it works for quick and simple drafting and for beginners!

Let me know what you think of the book Fraugee728, I'd love to know an insider's opinion/advice Smiley
