Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Pretty much. I changed the sleeve, see below.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the princess seams on this pattern. I made View B. A couple of years ago I made View C.
Fabric Used: For the shell: I'm not sure what it is. I've had it in my stash for quite some time. For the lining: Simply Silk polyester from Joann's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: The pattern is unlined but I creating a lining for it. Lining picture
I lengthened the sleeve by 1" and omitted the elastic at the bottom of the sleeve. When I tried the jacket it on before making the casing I decided I liked the look of it without the elastic.
I removed some ease in the sleeve cap.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I probably won't sew this jacket again but may use the pattern in the future for another view. I would recommend this pattern to others.
Conclusion: This pattern was easy to sew. The pockets needed careful marking but were not difficult. I'm sorry that I started this jacket in the middle of September right before I knew about the lined jacket contest. This would have been my entry.
