|Pattern Description: |
A semi-fitted Chanel style jacket.
6-14, I cut the 12 - a bit on the roomy side, if you are between sizes, I'd recommend to use the smaller one.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
On first look yes, on second look slightly different due to some changes I made.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions are excellent, complex and easy to follow - it is a very time consuming project though, because of the couture techniques that involve quite a bit of hand sewing.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I particularly liked the 3-piece sleeve, but did not really care for the grain line of the upper sleeve. I changed that for the next jacket.
Linton tweed, 100% wool
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I prefer the princess seam to start at the armhole instead of the shoulder seam, so I changed that. I also nipped in the centre back seam about 1.5cm (3/4") to have the jacket more fitted. As I pivoted the princess seam, I incorporated the bust dart there (the reason being that I want to make the next jacket in a checked fabric and like the check to match at the seams). I made the sleeves about 2.5cm (1") narrower and changed the armhole accordingly. As I didn't like the size and shape of the pockets, I changed that as well.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Oh yes, this is a wonderful jacket and if done using the recommended couture techniques, it is as comfortable as a cardigan.
I can highly recommend this pattern, most of the changes I made were purely personal preferences.
