The pattern looked like the picture

Didn't use any of the pattern instructions as they had (rightly) received the thumbs down from all other reviewers

Pieces well constructed and made up nicely

Red wool felt

Used instructions from Rebekkah's blog which were great. However, I made a really bad mistake in my choice of fabric which was far too thick and non-pressable so that a lot of the tailoring detail was wasted

Yes - I made this one for my daughter but would like to make one for myself for next year using a better fabric

A learning experience
