|Pattern Description: |
MISSES' LINED JACKET, TOP, DRESS, LINED SKIRT, AND PANTS: Semi-fitted jacket has convertible collar, self-lined front, princess seams, and long sleeves. Very loose-fitting, pullover top or dress has self-lined yokes and forward shoulder seams. Purchased bias tape finishes armholes.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes--loose-fitting and semi-slouchy
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
The seam right down the front is not my favorite, and I personally hate using bias tape to bind armholes. All else was great--minimal fabric was needed, so this is great for refashions, and it's so comfy and wearable on a daily basis in an office setting. Plus, no super-low, saggy armholes--yes!
1 version in a silky, 1 in a shudder-worthy thrifted poly
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
On the second version, I removed some of the fullness in the back; it's still a generous, comfortable fit after removing about 2". A little extra length would make this easier to tuck into most things. With a high-waisted skirt, it's perfect.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Already sewed it twice, would definitely do it again.
It's distinctive enough to be fun to wear, but can also work as a TNT shell pattern. Easy and fast to sew, and flattering to boot.
