|Pattern Description: |
A knit jacket with a big silhouette. With a set of placket type of broad folded collars down to the waist.
I used my usual size 36. I was expecting it over-sized because of a drapey fabric.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
It looked slightly different because I used very hanging fabric. My one doesn't look like a jacket, but it looks like a cardigan.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Yes, it was fine.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I wished it to be a light cardigan which I can be totally wrapped in, and I think it was successful. It was very easy to sew, and this was a bonus. It needs a very large amount of fabric to make, so this may be counted as a dislike.
polyester/nylon lace jersey
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I shortened sleeve by 4cm on impulse, but it is still very long (which I don't mind that much after all).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes!
This is a nice pattern which would create many different looks by using different fabrics.
