|Pattern Description: |
Men's jacket, shirt, and vest pattern.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Sort of, but I made modifications to the pattern.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Actually I did not find them that great. I suppose they were fine enough, but the steps on how to attach the lining and finishing the back were really confusing and difficult to follow. Because the vinyl wasn't being helpful either, I opted for a totally different finishing on the back.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the length and style, but I'm not a huge fan of the waist seam. All the pocket options were nice, but it would have been nicer to have been able to have more "hidden" pockets, rather than all the flaps.
I used a medium-weight vinyl for the shell and a red lining on the inside.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I cut the pattern so it would hang open on the wearer, as it was based on a character design. I also shrunk the collar, added a hood, and took out most of the pockets.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm not sure. I might look for a different pattern if I wanted to sew this kind of jacket again, but I wouldn't cry if this was all I could find.
Got the job done, but wasn't my favorite pattern to work with.
