How can you sat theses are Princess Diana's favorite crafts? Did you know HRH personally? What a fraud. I'm not going to go onto your page again.

Haven't tried. How do I print the draft pattern?

Hi there, The project designer did not provide a version of the pattern. You would basically need to draft your own pattern, using this project as inspiration. Hope that helps! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Not enough info. Provide links to materials for purchase please.

No I have not. The first of the instructions for the Lave victorian hat is to DRAFT PATTERN. It is a free patttern but no instructions are given for how to draft it. Its the lace victorian hat with Structure 2, Stiffen stiffen, chicken wire, metal working gloves, lace, plumes, dove, lace yardage lace trim, pearl, braid, cording trims.
