Pattern Description: Misses' & Miss petite jacket, pants and skirt. Threads sewing pattern collection.
Pattern Sizing: Excellent size range - 8 to 24.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so
Were the instructions easy to follow? I didn't actually look at them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the simple lines & the tie front. And it fits beautifully as an added bonus!
Fabric Used: a gorgeous Chinese brocade fabric
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made jacket view C, but left off the floral appliqué, as the fabric was the star of the show. I also added a hook & eye to the centre front to help the jacket sit right when it was tied.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I don't normally like an unlined jacket, but decided to see how this one went as the fabric was quite firm. It turned out great & I didn't end up putting in a lining.
It fitted without any adjustment & is very flattering, so much so that I would like to try the collared version.
Conclusion: This jacket turned out even better than I hoped it would; I am very pleased with it. It was also very fast & easy to put together, I sewed the whole jacket (including homemade shoulder pads & hand-sewn hems) in just over 3 hours.
So that to me is a winning combination & a guarantee that I will sew it again!
So I would recommend this pattern to anyone who'd like a stylish jacket that is very easy to sew. With princess seams it is also a very easy style to adjust.
