Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
I'm still undecided

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I loved how that it is a simple straight forward pattern with only a few pieces. It is great for wool coating and even tweed. Now keep in mind the sleeve is a bit tricky. It isn't the usual set-in situation. Mark everything and take your time. It took me way more attempts then I care to admit but that was mostly because I was trying to fly through this project. Once I just slowed down and baste stitched the under sleeve, clipped the seams, and carefully pined it; wasn't so bad. So take your time with this one ladies or it could mess-up the love style of this jacket.
Fabric Used:
wool coating
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
The lining was kinda weird.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
For sure
Conclusion:
This is a great pattern and good for all skill levels. If you need a quick simple coat this is your pattern.

I just found this having seen your amazing Tiffany's dress, interested in your other reviews. This looks like it has real potential and I wonder if you finished it? It's so unusual to see a magyar sleeve combined with some seam shaping.

Funny you asked "a life in stitches", the coat is close to being finished. I will be posting pictures as soon as I put the buttons on it.
