Pattern Description: Women's jacket, vest and pants
Pattern Sizing: I made size med
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? it looks more like the line drawing than the fashion illustration
Were the instructions easy to follow? I never looked at them
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like vests and this one seemed to have a nice shape to it.
Fabric Used: cotton jersey with a bit of lycra
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I eliminated the bodice seam and smushed out the shoulder dart
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I tried twice and will not be trying it again. I had some fit issues with how the front of this vest lies. I've made this twice, both with and FBA and without and had the same problem both times. It seems like the pattern is too long at the center front. I go into this in more detail at the bottom of this post on my blog Room for Sewing
Conclusion: I put a lot of work into this garment and I'm happy for the most part. I will wear it, but I'm throwing the pattern away for good this time!
