Pattern Description: Very loose-fitting jumper has zipper and two piece sleeves. Lined hood has velcro closing.

Pattern Sizing: I made a child size 7 for my granddaughter. She had requested that I make her a cat costume this year. Her mom was kind enough to inform me in mid August to give me plenty of time.

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 had some difficulty getting the ears to stand up but was able to hand stitch them in place.

Fabric Used: Faux fur purchased at Hancock. I did not realize until after I got it home (and looked it up online) that it was dry clean only. I called my daughter to let her know and we decided that it would be OK.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I thought that the v shape in the front of the forehead looked funny and trimmed it off. I also substitutd velcro for a zipper on the costume. In lieu of the shoe covers and mittens I made a matching candy bag.

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

Conclusion: Great costume. It got lots of compliments. My granddaughter loved it and had so much fun in it!
