I have just gotten my copy of this book (used). There are a couple of items that could be really, really useful to me such as the full pants, the full teeshirt, the skirt, and perhaps, the shawl-collar jacket. Here is my problem. Are the patterns she uses for the book still available, anywhere? I have never seen Rodale patterns in a store. Nowhere in the book does it tell where you are supposed to get them. I THINK I can substitute similar patterns from other lines and make changes in them, but it would be far simpler if I could just get the patterns the author uses. Perhaps the patterns were supposed to be included with the book. If so, they were gone before I got my copy, used.
