|Pattern Description: |
Girls' Jumper, Jacket and Knit Leggings and Dress or Top.
I made the jacket.
3 through 6
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Pretty much, yes
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were fine.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
My daughter is slender, so she ends up with mixed sizes now. I have to cut a 4 wide, and a 6 in length. The way this jacket is pieced together was not easy to figure out which parts were width and which were length. I'm still not sure if there is a pattern error, or if it was user error, but the width of the back shoulder is about 1" longer on each side than the collar piece.
I tried to double check, and it looks like I matched up the sizes correctly, so I just did the best I could. I ended up making a small pleat in each back shoulder in order to get it to fit. It makes the back a little strange, but overall the fit still worked out.
I like the back ruffle, very cute!
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I tried to alter the size, but somehow messed it up, so I ended up making pleats in the back shoulder.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm kind of mixed. I like the outcome, but it doesn't drape the way you'd like easily, but I like the shape of the front and collar.
A good pattern, possible collar issues, check our measurements!
