Pattern Description: Semi-fitted, lined jackets, princess seams, collar and lapels, gored back (back is longer than front) and shaped hem. Flared, bias skirt , above ankle has waistband and side zipper closure.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, except for a shorter skirt.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
If you know what you are doing when reading them, yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
It's a pretty suit and has a lot of possibilities.
Wool Gaberdine, Brown with a blue pinstripe (like Doctor Who)
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Made the torso shorter since I am short waisted, lengthened the sleeves, shortened the skirt. I also added a back "belt" detail above the pleats. I also lengthened the back pleats for more drama.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Probably not, only because I have no need really and don't wear suits. The jacket is cute though.
