As always, fabulous service and WONDERFUL fabric! I was so excited that I got to sew up my sweat almost straight away rather than just adding to my stash! I hope its not too long til I can make myself some pj's!
As always happy with the product. As per usual, friendly service. It is a pleasure to shop at MaaiDesign.
package arrived very quickly and the fabric i got was super soft and lovely - the only small (or big depending on how you see it!) is the colour for the off beetle green is a lot brighter in real life, at least to me, maybe it's my monitor it's a little bit kermit the frog! so will need to change the pattern i was going to use to something with a lower neckline, so the colour isn't too close to the face as i have a feeling the fabric is such high quality it probably won't fade with washing!
