To fail is to try in the first place.

Thanks for the feedback....I'm aware of the slooooow loading, that (apparently!) is down to the host (network solutions) and thay are aware of it and , so they say, in the process of fixing it. They'd better, or I'll hunt them down, ha ha !

..........i just wondered if your images are saved as just jpegs, or if you save them for the web as gifs??  gifs saved at 72 dpi download on a page far quicker and take up less server room too........  something that i found out just recently by trial and error Wink

that's a really nice site! congratulations!!! Smiley
i like the general design of the site, the blue dots-ellipses and the patterns themselves seem to be great too! 
the drawings of them definitely are Wink

but i'd like to make a few suggestions on the layout of the text on the first page, because it was a bit hard to see what is where. perhaps it would be better if you changed the headlines (eg 'search by garment') into different font (like the vintage font of the site-name) or if the headline text was entirely in caps?
the explaining text ('unique and exclusive high fashion...' etc) could also be in more fun font, because the message in it says so much, but the font does not say it.
also, i found hard to read the text that describes the collection, the impression is too cluttered.


think outside the box

I like your website...everything came up pretty quickly and I thought it was easy to navigate. 

Now on to the good stuff.   I really love your patterns!  Finally, some decent outfits!   Those coats, and the suits, and well, just everything.  I'm saving the page so I can just lurk and drool.   My only (ouch) complaint is that I am such a cheapo, I probably wouldn't spend that much on a pattern, even though your time and effort I'm sure are worth every penny.  Congratulations and wishing you much success.

Hey Dolores, (coming out from under a rock) COnGraTULatioNS!!!!!  I just found this topic.  My friend has been talking about this new pattern company for a while now but when I went to look, it was down.  Now I'm happy to tell her that I had 'postings' with the owner!  Your site is wonderful and the designs look NOW!  I wish you much success.  BTW my friend ordered a pattern from you.

I almost hate to bring this up, 'cause the site itself looks great and the patterns you're selling seem really nice, and it's obvious you put a lot of work into it (The pirate queen line is my favorite, but I don't think I could pull that off in public) but the free pattern for the shrug is totally incomprehensible...

Oh, wait! I just got it! *giggle* You might wanna add a picture of it from the front while empty or something so that the stupid people like me don't get lost. I need to make a friend a shrug to go over her dress, and I think I'll try this one- it's simple and elegant, should work well with her outfit.

LOL! Sorry to cause any confusion, I tried to squeeze as much info on the page as possible (it could only be a single page, don't ask me why, I'm not a technical person, I just follow what the web-guy says!) but just couldn't get any more sketches on & still have the resolution I needed. Pesky technology! Wink
