Pattern Description: Lined jacket

Pattern Sizing: size 8

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? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the shorter feminine sleeves

Fabric Used: Thick purple Corduroy from Joanne fabrics red tag for $5 a yard!

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I took the underarm sleeves in because they seemed a little to big, but now regret that since I used a fleece lining. Now it fits a little to snug around the arm.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes

Conclusion: This was my first jacket and I am happy with the results. I will be making others.
