Pattern Description:
Passport dress & jacket.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow?
Somewhat. The instructions are clearly written for the gathering the collar are written very clearly. However, the instructions for the welt pockets aren't as clear.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Loved the jacket shown on the cover. Hence decided to make it. It isn't the everyday jacket the gathered collar makes all the difference.

Fabric Used:
It was a remnant so don't know exactly but it definitely polyester.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I had limited fabric so I toned down the collar a little and made 3/4th sleeves rather than full.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Will defintely make the jacket in plain fabric (silk) and would exaggerate the collar.

Good for intermediate or advanced level.

So cute! Perfect fabric choice. Love the ruffle as it's nice but not overwhelming.

Interesting jacket. I like these less-formal looks for work - you get a jacket without all the stuffiness. Great pattern-matching on that and a super fit.

I agree with mad badger, I have the pattern, but did not "see" the jacket

This is one of those patterns that I never looked twice at but your version makes me want one of my own. Nice job - really great jacket!
