Pattern Description: An activewear jacket with full zip, princess seams, and raglan sleeves. Oh, and pockets!

Pattern Sizing: I made the small.

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? Yes, everything was detailed in the step by step directions with great pictures to help me visualize the construction.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked how it all came together. I was able to install the zipper and have everything about the jacket line up, etc. Well written pattern.

Fabric Used: Microfleece

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I did not make any alterations to the jacket.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, definitely. I am excited to sew up the more fitted version next.

Conclusion: This is a great pattern to have if you're interested in sewing jackets/activewear. I made the roomier fit jacket and it is SO comfortable. I feel it has the appropriate amount of ease, especially through the arms. It is not bulky in any way. I am excited to try the slim fit version with a more dry wicking fabric to wear while running. I know it will be perfect for my active lifestyle. Great pattern!
