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? Super easy. I only looked at them to see how the collar was gathered.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love that this pattern will allow me to add many light to mid-weight outerwear options to my wardrobe. This pattern runs kind of big and since I have sloping shoulders, that's not good but thankfully, because of the unstructured nature of the garment, it still works.
Fabric Used: This was sold as a ponte knit but it is really more of a french terry.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I definitely plan to.
Conclusion: I've had this pattern for awhile, I'm glad I finally got around to sewing it. A nice entry into outerwear for beginners.
