|Pattern Description: This is a collection of jackets for sheer and/or lightweight fabrics. This review is of view D, a shawl collar jacket with shoulder princess seams, and a peplum back. The front swoops from bust length at center to hip length at the back seam. No closures or facings. Long sleeves. |
Pattern Sizing: Xs to M and L to XL. This is for my daughter, size M.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Pretty clear. I've made a lot of shawl collar jackets lately, and I'm not sure how clear the shoulder/neck is described.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The lines of this are graceful, great in a sheer fabric. It was pretty easy to sew.
Maybe it's because it's my fifth shawl collar or maybe because of the sheer fabric, but I finally did a nice job on the pivot seam between shoulder and back neck.
Fabric Used: A burnout nylon sheer. Black with gold and red maple leaves. Perfect for this pattern.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I sewed 5/8 seams and then finished with a narrow 3-thread serge. This almost has a rolled hem appearance. I set the sleeves in flat, and then seamed sides and arms.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, this is very cute and feminine in a sheer fabric. No facings, so sews quickly.
The bust is somewhat loose fitting, but the arms are tight. Take this into account if you are sizing down.
Conclusion: A graceful, shawl collar, princess seamed jacket with peplum back for sheer or lightweight fabrics. Fairly easy for a jacket.
