Mid-hip, button-front shirt/jacket features a V-neck with narrow stand-up collar, bracelet-length sleeve, side vents and narrow stitched hems. Pattern Sizing:
XS-XXL Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, but I also added pockets Were the instructions easy to follow?
Since I am a bit spacially challenged, I puzzled a little over the unusual collar instructions. Once I figured them out, I thought they were wonderful. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It is a very simple boxy jacket, but the collar brings it up a notch. Fabric Used:
Wide wale cotton corduroy in blue and rust that I bought for a dollar a yard at my annual ASG sale. Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added pockets and did not stitch down the facing or the hems. Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Simple and nice looking--what could be better? I am already planning one for a friend. Conclusion:
My goal was to make soft and warm jackets to wear around the house in the winter in place of the ugly fleece jackets I have worn for years. These fit well in my wardrobe--and I will not be ashamed to be caught in public wearing them.
