How soon do you ship orders ?
I try my very best to ship the next business day after payment is received. I'm probably manage to ship on this schedule, 95% of the time. If I don't ship next day, it's the day after that.
Where do you get your design patterns ?
I design and make all my patterns myself. I've been doing this professionally since 1991, but have been sewing FOREVER. Feels that way anyways. My first real job was three years working in a sewing factory.
