Pattern Description: A feminine fitted jacket that creates an instant hourglass figure! This great-fitting modern jacket is perfect for work, weekend or a special night out.
Princess seams and peplum seaming form a flattering silhouette. Choose from a flirty double peplum, or keep things simple with flat peplum seaming instead. The collarless neckline allows you to wear your favourite scarves easily! Jacket is fully lined, with pleated sleeve cap detail and zip front closure.
Pattern Sizing: 0-16. i made a size 10. no changes to the pattern fit.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes i decided to do the double peplum look. it turned out just like the photo minus small rookie mistakes i made Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes. all of the directions were clear with the exception of the lining instructions. there is an amused knowledge in linings and hand sewing. of course i had neither. What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? i love the shape of this jacket. It was definetly a little intimidated being that this was my first jacket. but it was honestly a fun sewing project.
Fabric Used:I used two types of corduroy Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I decided to use a contrasting fabric for the side panels of the jacket. i think it adds visual interest
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? yes im planning on sewing it again. now that i am more familiar with the pattern i think it will go much easier. especially the lining.
Conclusion: great jacket with great shape. everyone should at least make one.
