Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions for this jacket are great, easy to follow!
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love this pattern, I love the details and I love the way it looks. I love the way the button holes are done in the seams so you cant see them and I love that it is fully lined and that the collar looks the way it does on the envelope, I would suggest hand sewing the seam buttonholes closed after your done by hand and just remember when you are working with curves to pin and clip it makes it so much easier. The weight of my fabric was heavy enough that I did not interface it, not even the collar. I added a loop in the CB of my lining so I can hook it to my coat rack..lol
Fabric Used: I used a corduroy
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any changes to this.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I dont know if I would sew it again but I might ..lol and yes I would recommend this pattern.
I love this Jacket. I also made a pencil skirt to match and wore it as a suit to church on sunday
