Pattern Description:
Misses pants or shorts, jacket, knit dress or top. I made the jacket.
Pattern Sizing:
US 8 to 16

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes it looks exactly like the photo on the envelop

Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were easy to follow and I think it has lots of detail for someone who is a beginner.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the style of the jacket.
Fabric Used:
The fabric said bottom weight cotton. Its very sturdy, if I were to sew this again I would use something a little softer.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I sewed a straight size eight. No alterations. Fits very well.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm not sure of either. I think its a good pattern to learn to make a jacket, lots of detailed instructions.

I feel this jacket just came out ok after all the work. Maybe it was my fabric choice? I am proud how nice the inside came out .

I like the style of this jacket! I am glad to hear it was easy to make! I am tempted to try it myself. Thanks for the fabric info as well. I will try a softer fabric.
