I was satisfied with the poses. They were all nice and dynamic, and you can usually find one that shows the part of the garment you're focusing on well. My only problem is the anatomy of the figures. I understand that fashion figures tend to have unusual proportions, but there as mistakes on the templates that can't be excused as style. For example, in some of the poses the arms are different lengths, the fingers are deformed, and the legs bend in strange looking ways, especially around the ankles. Also, there are sometimes lines drawn inside the figure that are useless to the sketcher and don't make anatomical sense (such as a v-shaped crotch line that goes almost all the way up to the top of the hips), which I've found to be difficult to work around. Often times I've had to draw over the template's figure to correct the proportions because it bugged me so much.
Although the templates are drawn sloppily, they are very useful and save time when brainstorming ideas. Personally I would not use this pad to present final products, but it's perfect for getting concepts onto paper fast, and for beginners who can't draw a fashion figure themselves.
The paper inside is white, thick and of good quality. The figure outlines are easily seen and well-printed. They are pale pinkish grey. All sheets are detachable, there's a special tearing line for doing it accurately. If you detach the sheets however, you can't put it in A4 transparent file holders, as they are slightly wider than that. The metal spiral is quite hard and doesn't bend easily.
It's a good portfolio prep, which you can personalize however you like.
