Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I think it looks almost identical since I used the same fabric and trim as the pattern drawing!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
I love vintage instructions. However, they aren't written for beginners so you might want a good sewing book as well.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I used a men's shirt from the thrift shop as this was made for a guest post for Project run & Play about sewing with men's shirts. There were 22 pattern pieces and I can't believe I got them all cut out on grain!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made the sleeves a little less puffy.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
