Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were GREAT. Nothing confusing or fussy.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love that it’s simple, fast and easy and CHIC. There is nothing to dislike.
I used a black boiled wool-like fabric with white-lined plaid that was mistakenly shipped to me.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I didn’t make any alterations. I did change the way it closes. I put in invisible snaps instead of buttons. I also omitted the interfacing since this fabric is thick enough by itself and holds its own... even after the wash. There is a belt loop at the middle back that I thought was useless, so I didn't put it.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
If I found a great color, I would sew it again. Maybe like a vivd blue... and I think I have some! I would love to have a light brown one , too. Yes, I totally recommend.
I love that it’s simple, fast and easy. I wore it with a pair of Vogue trouser pants I made for an interview. They were an in between item that I needed. More photos and review for the trousers on my Blog.
