Pattern Description: Open cardigan with cascading panels and fold-back front band, front and back waist seams, long sleeves and stitched hems.
Wrong side of fabric will show.

Pattern Sizing:XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL

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.

That is a really nice looking cardi. You should have no problem finding mix and match things to wear it with. Isn't it nice when we find a pattern we like?

Thanks so much for your review. I picked up this pattern while on vacation in Santa Fe in a store which had it made up in a wide stripe. Need to start it !

What a cute jacket. I like the lines in it, and can see it with a solid fabric so the topstitching stands out.
