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, it was a fairly simple jacket and the instructions were clear. I did follow them and made no mistakes (go figure.)
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I liked that it was easy and a bit different, different for me at least. There are a lot of swingy loose jacket patterns out there and in the stores, RTW. It's a very up-to-date style. I was able to make the entire jacket (except for top-stitching) on the serger).
Fabric Used:A polyester/cotten double knit blend from Vogue Fabrics.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:I made a size M except for waist and hips which I graded out to the size L. I ended up needing my shoulders a bit narrower and fixed that when I inserted the sleeve cap, I took off about 1/2 from the outside shoulder (on just the shoulder portion).
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I'll definitely be sewing this again. I see it in a thin soft polar fleece, just something to snuggle up in and stay warm.
Conclusion: I enjoyed this pattern and really enjoyed wearing the jacket and hope to make some more.
