Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
No dislikes. I love that it was just a few pieces. Front, back, sleeves, neck binding. It was all very self explanatory to put together. I'm new to sewing and barely looked at the instructions.
Double knit from Hancock "Value fabrics" section
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Hemmed 2" instead of 1 1/4", took 7/8" side seams instead of 5/8"
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I WILL sew it again! I hope to find a burnt orange or red knit. And of course I'd love it in black.
I sewed this up in just a couple of hours yesterday to wear out on date night with my husband. He loved it too
