|Pattern Description: Misses' jacket with princess lines and trim and pocket variations. I made View B.|
Pattern Sizing: I made my usual size 8 at the neck blending to a 12 at the hips. The jacket is a little snug across the shoulders, and since making it, I've learned that I need to do a broad back adjustment on close fitting wovens. Next time!
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, very much so.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, the instructions were very good. I think this would be a great first jacket pattern for an advanced beginner.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the front shoulder flap detail, the zipper closure, and the fact that the jacket has usable pockets (!!).
Fabric Used: A Marc Jacobs quilted faux suede from FabricMart. This fabric was wonderful to work with. The pattern has tips for working with real and faux leather/suede, including using clips instead of pins to avoid permanent holes. However, this fabric pinned easily, and the holes disappeared.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: This pattern is for an unlined jacket, but my fabric required one because of its batting backing. I used rayon (Ambiance) for the lining. I cut the back, back side, and front side pieces out of lining, sewed them together, then cut a curved section out of the back to match the back jacket facing. I then attached the lining following instructions from another jacket pattern. (The front piece doesn't require lining since there is a front facing.) I also lined the pockets.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I've been wearing this jacket a lot, so I can certainly imagine making it, or one of the other views, again. I do recommend it.
Conclusion: Great little jacket and great pattern!
