Pattern Description: I made this cut away Victorian tuxedo jacket and vest, 3 vests actually. I did make some modifications to match the jacket requested by my client Review on my blog

Pattern Sizing: I made the largest size available for the jacket and 2 vests. The smallest size for the 3rd vest.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, except for the modifications to the bottom of the jacket, and the buttons on the vest (which I later discovered were not supposed to be sewn on in a vertical line.

Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were pretty awful. In particular I had difficulty with the vest welt pockets. It was said to duplicate the pants' pocket, but the vest has an angled pocket (versus the squared off pocket of the pants) and therefore the directions were VERY confusing. The vest buttons are not designed to be sewn in a vertical line, but I didn't catch this on the first vest, causing it to lay funny. Would have been helpful to have the button placement marked on the pattern. I also had difficulty figuring out how to attach the lining.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The sleeves did not fit well and looked bunchy and bad. I would also have preferred to see some couture techniques to make the jacket look a little higher quality.

Fabric Used: For the jacket I used a hand-dyed cotton twill, as we could not find the right shade of green and I had a green twill that looked like acid-washed denim. For the vests I used a "raw silk" looking polyester for the groom's vest, a rich green brocade for the best man, and a gold drapery fabric with gold lining material for the teen guest.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I modified the front of the jacket from a buttoned high cut front easing to the cut away, to a non-buttoning front with a pointed waistline.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would sew it again. I would only recommend it to others if they were experienced sewers who didn't really need directions.

Conclusion: Fun! I don't get to sew for men very often. The groom is very into Steampunk, so I know these items will get worn often!
