I have not been impressed with this line of patterns at all. They really don't have much shape, nor do they fit many people right-off-the-bat. I think they might have been a little more acceptable in the early '90's, when we were all still used to a looser-fitting profile.

It's reviews like yours that make PR such a valuable resource. I'm sure you'll save a lot of people from needless frustration.

Park Bench patterns are unsized. That was something I didn't know when I bought one, though being about the size it was, and that was large, it worked out that I had to make things smaller, but not so much it got silly. They have a whole patter on the site about how this is easier and helps fit, but that just isn't so. Very much a cop out for a commercial pattern. I did make a few items from the one I bought, but have given that pattern away. With so many good patterns from Burda, KWIK SEW, Ottobre and so on, it is too bad but Park Bench is way too much trouble. But thanks for your review and I bet your jacket is really nice!
