Stylish casual lined zip-front jacket with hood hidden inside the wide collar.
Pattern Sizing: 4
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, very much.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes. I followed the excellent and very detailed Minoru sew-along posts on Sewaholic's website. These posts are a great way to break down a larger project into manageable smaller steps. The sew-along also has extra notes and tips and is very well done.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Its an excellent pattern with lots to like! The only changes were to add outside pockets and a drawstring cord with toggle in hood.
Supplex originally purchased from The Green Pepper for my husband's jacket but he changed to navy with the teal as a contrast, so this is the remainder. The fabric is soft to feel with a cotton hand and high tech Zepel water-repellent finish. Its lovely quality and TGP's service was A+
Lining is a lightweight DKNY silk (the fun letters are DKNY too) from The Fabric Store with Spotlight Sunsilky (anti-static) lining for the sleeves.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Sleeves: I used the square shoulder adjustment from Sharon's toile plus a little extra width for the sleeve ... many thanks Sharon
