    Matthew Gnagy aka the Modern Maker is noticeably absent from your list. Is there a particular reason? Yes, I am being nosy. 😉

    • Frithuric as a Moroni Painting says:

      Hi Fionna, Mathew isn’t really absent. I didn’t use his books for this project as my desire is to translate the source materials for myself not use another’s interpretation. However, I have studied pattern drafting with him directly so his influence is definitely in my work to some extent. My practice is not to list the people I have studied with as period resources (unless I use their scholarship, of course) though I am thankful for the skills.
