Hi all!
I'm looking at picking up some of the Truly Victorian patterns (dresses so pretty!), but I'm curious if anyone has used them and know how difficult they are to follow. I'm still a beginner at sewing, so I'm a bit worried that I buy them and they will make no sense whatsoever.

Has anyone had any experience with them? The ones I'm looking at in particular are:

I've only seen good things about TV patterns, although I haven't used them myself (yet). If you go to the Great Pattern Review I believe there are some TV patterns listed there: http://www.gbacg.org/great-pattern-review/index.html

I haven't used those particular patterns, but I have used Truly Victorian ones and they are very easy to follow in my opinion. I have been sewing for about ten years, and to this day, sometimes random directions in patterns make me cock my head to the side and go "Huh?" but Truly Victorian ones didn't do that to me.

Highly reccommend TV patterns, they're EXTREMELY user-friendly.

I'll agrre with that sentiment. We've just ordered a batch of TV patterns for stock in our shop. I think they're amazing.

I've made the TV 361 (Butterfly Train) just recently, and its very easy to make. I've made another one of their skirts and it was also easy. The nice thing about Truly Victorian is that if you do happen to have any questions about anything, if you go on their forums and ask, the owner / pattern maker will do everything she can to help you with your questions.
