Pattern Description:
Men's Robe and Lounge Jacket from 1957. Features long raglan sleeves with cuffs, shawl collar, and patch pockets.

Pattern Sizing:
Large

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

Were the instructions easy to follow?
I had to read the steps for the collar and sleeve cuffs a couple of times to understand them, but otherwise yes.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The pockets, collar, and cuffs are nice finishing touches.

Fabric Used:
Flannel.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added quite a bit of top stitching to the collar, pockets, and belt.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes.
