From this pattern I made the: reversible hoodie, reversible pants, mittens.
For the second time making this pattern I made just the hoodie, and modified it to be a single layer and not reversible. I used a sweatshirt terry knit of unknown fiber from the thrift store. I made it non-reversible for a San Diego (California) baby. HERE IT IS (PIC)
The remainder of this review is in regards to the first version.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes... but I didn't have a baby to model it!

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. This was the first time I've made something reversible but it was pretty easy. Using easy fabrics helped. I used a flannel and a fleece.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I enjoyed making these garments. I do recommend labelling the top/front of your pant legs... because I messed up and put them together all wrong the first time.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I would totally make this again! I think it's a good layette gift for a winter baby. It is unisex so that's helpful.
