Pattern Description: Princess seam jacket with a single or double peplum and pleated sleeveheads
Pattern Sizing: I made a sz16 with adjustments
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? Yes they are fine
Fabric Used: Polar fleece that's been sitting in my stash for ages!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I recently fitted a bodice block so used it to fit this pattern. Basically it's a sz 16 with a FBA and sloping shoulder adjustment.
The pattern comes with a pleated sleeve too but I used my TNT sleeve from McCalls 5956
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes I might, it would be nice to make it up in a more formal fabric (wool, tweed, etc) or a nice ponte knit.
Conclusion: I wanted to make a nicer version of a hoodie/sweatshirt jacket and this jacket has the front zipper but some nicer details like all the seam work. I left it unlined and finished the seams with serging and using bias tape on the neck and hem lines.
It went together quite easily and I can see myself making it again out of something nicer than my cheapy polar fleece!
