    Thank you so much for this information. As a newbie, I've never heard about her before. I like all the patterns in the link you sent, but I would really like to make *ALL* of the Simple A-line patterns. I really like those "Precious Dresses " pattern as well. But considering my beginner abilities, I think I can make those A-line dresses and tops right away and when I do gain enough experience, I will try the "Precious" line as well..
