Pattern Description: Misses' Separates-Misses' top, skirt, pants and jacket
Pattern Sizing: 4-16
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not after the changes I made (shortening & changing sleeves-also made out of a heavy knit which was not a "suggested" fabric)
Were the instructions easy to follow? Easy except for the jacket collar application, which was confusing.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I dislike the instructions for the collar application.
Fabric Used:100% Poly that I got on sale at Hancock Fabrics for a total of $3.71. This was intended just for a muslin, although it turned out well enought to actually wear.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I shortened the original pattern by 2 inches (should have shortened it by just 1 inch). I made the sleeves 3/4 length and added elastic ruching, like I saw in a RTW jacket.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I might sew it again, if I could figure another way to attach the collar. I would not recommend this jacket pattern for a beginner (due to the confusing collar instructions).
Conclusion: This pattern does not suggest using a knit fabric, but I was trying to copy a RTW jacket I saw at Macy's. It is more tailored than the picture on the pattern envelope shows.
