Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Similar, but I did do some alterations to the pattern.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, it seems like all Kwik Sew instructions are easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It was given to me a long time ago so I used it.
Fabric Used: I used a woven plaid, I think it is acrylic and it was purchased from Fine Wools Direct (now closed) many years ago.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: As I was using a woven fabric I decided to make View A but all in the same fabric. First there was no way I could match the plaid pattern, (no way I could get any more of this fabric) I couldn't cut the facing in 1 piece, so it has a join and definitely no pockets. It is only for home so I am not particularly worried about the non matching plaid. I tried it out this morning, it is really lovely, soft and warm to wear.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I may sew it again one day if the need arises.
Conclusion: It is is fairly quick to make, I wonder why I have taken so long to make it.
