Hi Mena,

I was just spending a lazy Saturday looking at both the Sew Weekly archives and vintage patterns for sale on Etsy when the two suddenly matched up! I saw the WWII nurse's aide uniform you wore for Halloween and stumbled across what seems to be the exact pattern on Etsy - right down to the little hat! What a funny coincidence! I also wanted to say thank you for setting up this community - I'd hit a complete sewing rut and was almost ready to give up on sewing as my body shape had changed and I no longer fit in one standard pattern size. One of the sewing circle members has essentially taught me uneven pattern grading by correspondence and I'm back sewing again! Thanks for your part in helping that happen :)
