Semi lined linen Jacket with elastic in the waist for figure flattery.
I made a size 14, I like my jackets, where I can move in them and do not feel constrained while moving around.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes and no. Yes the jacket looks similar to the one in the picture however; I made some modifications and adjustment so it would fit me perfectly. Overall the jacket looks and feels great.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes the instructions were very easy to follow, but since I changed some things around I kind of had to add in some steps of my own to accommodate the modest changes I made.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that I did not have to make alot of adjustments to the pattern to fit me and that the instructions did not complication or confuse me while the jacket was under construction.
From my fabric stash I chose pink linen. I can’t remember where I got it but I like it now.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not want elastic in the sleeves nor did I want a fully lined jacket, do I didn’t put them in. Only other changes were the contours around the waist to fit lil ole me.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Both yes in a New York minute! I am just thinking of a color to make this jacket in next.
