About Center for Pattern Design Patterns
Our patterns are meant to be - educational patterns - that is, they are unusual and most often have some feature that is a learning experience which is the whole point in publishing them. Therefore, they are for more experienced crafts people (but who’s stopping you!) and may not contain detailed sewing instructions or additional pieces such as linings and/or facings since the focus in on the cut of the main pieces, leaving secondary details to the preferences and skills of the cutter. As in all unusual patterns, it is best to make a toile first - a sample - to work out the construction and also to adjust the fullness and ease to your chosen fabric if necessary.
