Pattern Description: Great easy versatile jacket featuring a soft peplum with tucks falling from the princess line. The ¾ sleeve has a slit cuff that can be worn up or down. Wear it with or without a waisted belt – or dress it up with an interesting stud closure
Pattern Sizing: 6-30
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? yes, it did
Were the instructions easy to follow? minimal instructions
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I LOVE the styling of the jacket. It's a trendy peplum jacket without being TOO flouncy. It's very well drafted. The 3/8" seams called for were too narrow when sewing with a heavier weight ponte as I did. I had to topstitch all the seams to get them to lay flat.
Fabric Used: Ponte knit
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the collar facing and sleeve cuffs out of a contrasting fabric. I topstitched all the seams (see above)
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I will definitely sew it again. I highly recommend it, but watch the weight of your ponte and adjust the seam allowances accordingly.
Conclusion: A very cute jacket, relatively easy to sew. For more details and pictures, see my blog
