This issue includes twenty (20) patterns for women (European sizes 34-52) - wool coats, tunics, skirts, pants, tops, dresses, a classic shirt blouse, a cardigan and a wool scarf. Also beautiful jacket, skirt and a top for special occasions. To top it all, we also included much requested patterns for underwear as well as outdoor outfit for active women.
