Rated 1 out of 5 by Terri1384 from Big Inconvenience, Buy only if you need a bumroll I was so exited when I heard the pattern came out and wanted to make the underpinnings for me and give a surprise pattern for my BFF so I bought two at full price. The chemise sleeves were extremely small, even cutting it out at size 14 for me a size 10. The chemise length is longer than what you see in the pic and EXTREMELY wide. I didn't like the fit of the stay, it was really uncomfortable. The only thing that came out good was the bumroll. Otherwise, you will have to spend a heck of a lot of time adjusting the patterns for the chemise and stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Xinainla from Excellent for an introduction to 18th century! I bought this pattern mainly for the stays pattern, and I'm so glad I did! Mine came out beautifully, are very comfortable to wear, and form a great base piece for my gradually growing 18th century wardrobe. I also made the bumpad, which I love. It gives the perfect line under my skirts! I didn't try the smock pattern, but it looks like the correct shapes. Personally, I'd leave off the ruffles on the smock if I were to make it, but that's just me. I've been putting off jumping into 18th century costuming due to my lack of undergarments, and this pattern came out at the perfect time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsTMK from Great instructions. I bought both the Outlander patterns. I love both. I have made the stays and find them comfortable. Will be making the chemise next and have already tested the pattern so I know it will fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jackie23 from Did not work out and uncomfortable! I made the stay and the bumpad and they did not work out. Stay was super painful to wear despite me already being used to wearing waist clinchers and the bum pad didn't give me the period "boost" for my bottom. I'd give it a 2 star if it wasn't that the stay caused me back pain!
