Missing a few things March 10, 2019
Reviewer: Chantal from Westport, Canada  
A few things that could be improved in this kit - Even following the cutting diagram provided on the pattern, there is not enough fabric supplied in this kit to cut the "bag". I had to use cotton from my own stash in order to do it. The Petersham and Boning Casing should be labelled. I mistook one for the other and almost cut too much of one. Luckily, I caught my mistake early. Lastly, I had a hell of a time trying to find a tool to cut the hoopsteel. I searched all over the internet, and all suggested either tin snips or bolt cutters. I tried both and neither worked. I tried cutting the steel with a hacksaw (nope), then a mitre saw with a blade for metal and that didn't work (don't try this, it was unsafe). Finally, I brought the hoopsteel to the hardware store where they tried to cut it with heavy-duty tin snips. Nothing! Our very last try was with aviation snips. It worked! I bought Benchmark Straight Cut Aviation Snips. More info on which type of tin snips would have been useful.

REPLY: We've been selling this kit for years and no one has mentioned there not being enough fabric - I'll look into it. The Petersham Ribbon and Bone Casing tape are so different that it never occurred to me to identify them, but I can see how someone new to costuming would not know what to look for. We use Wiss Tin Snips and a smattering of others that we've collected. Some of the cutting success is dependent on strength, so we don't recommend one specific tool. I know some people who use a Dremel tool (like an electric drill, but with a tiny blade - personally I had no success with it). Sorry you had so much difficulty. I appreciate you bringing it to my attention.
