Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes. The views are quite different but it looks like the zip up version.
Were the instructions easy to follow? yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?I started out making this maybe 6 months ago. I didn't think the T shirt type ribbing I had was heavy enough and wasn't finding anything else in the fabric stores. I finally ordered some from Wawak. Should have purchased more instead of getting two different types! They are very narrow tubes so you'd have to cut lengthwise and make it narrower than I planned. Also I missed that you were supposed to use a contrast on View D, the zip up jacket. It didn't show on the photo and I just saw the main fabric layout. I'll have to see if there is a contract fabric showing a second hood cut out for View D. ( There is. It was below the main fabric cut out. )
I did not line the hood. I didn't use a facing either.
Fabric Used:Polar Fleece.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes, it's a pretty simple pattern. measure the length of the jacket before you buy the zipper! I trimmed off an inch at the top. I handstitched a stop at the top of the zipper. I hope that works.
Conclusion: I'm finishing this up for a Christmas gift for my cat crazy adult daughter. I will remember to take a photo when I finish it!
