Pattern Description: Loose fitting jacket with kimono sleeves.

Pattern Sizing: I made a 16, but took in the front & back 1.25 inches on each side. Like any Vogue pattern that's loose fitting, you could safely go down 2 sizes. I didn't but the pattern myself, so I had to make do with what I had.

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 thought it was just another kooky pattern but made up, it is so flattering.

Fabric Used: Crepe, lightweight tweed and rayon are recommended, but I used a stable double knit.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the front and back narrower to bring the shoulder seams into the right place for me.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I would!

Conclusion: I was really surprised how much I liked this when I finished it. This pattern is a real sleeper. Try it!!

I bought this pattern when it first came out and had the same misgivings as you! Thanks for the review, yours looks great and you have inspired me to give this pattern a go. Looks like it would be a great transeasonal topper, perfect for our spring weather here!

Wow! Your jacket is stunning! It looks so much better than the one on the pattern envelope. I was going to give away this pattern, but now I think I'll keep it.
