ETA 9/24/14 I made a white denim From Mood fabrics on this version, no changes from when I made it 8 years ago....I actually still wear the other one but I probably need to give it up, since it fits so well it's hard to give up but the look is not me as I progress as a senior...
Pattern Description: Top, unlined Jacket and Pants. I made the Jacket.
Pattern Sizing: sizes 4 to 18 I made size 6
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? Very Easy
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? It went together fast and had nice seams that shaped the jacket.
Fabric Used: Cotton Boho corduroy from the seventies from the thrift store: cost $1.50
Purple shinny buttons from my mother-in-law cost Free, Pattern from a garage sale cost .25
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Added the buttons instead of snaps and used a blue corduroy for the collar, cuffs and facing.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
yes I would sew it again. I recommend it because of the fit and how easy it was to sew.
Conclusion: I made this jacket 5 years ago when I was an avid thrift store, garage sale, estate sale shopper. I reveled in finding great bargains. Not any more, although it was fun it was a lot of work.
