Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Ha! No. I learned a lot though because I had to use common sense quite a bit to figure out what I was being told to do.
The instructions were confusing because of the terminology used. Once I figured out a step by putting 2 and 2 together, the instructions then made sense.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love the pattern. It's a pretty cute jacket and it went together very well. I really like the pockets, the asymmetrical zip and the collar.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. It was my first Lekala pattern and it was important to me to "sew it out of the envelope" to gauge the drafting. My daughter was my guinea pig
I'm sure though that there are things that can't be accounted for in measurements (or the newly added questions that also ask if you have long legs compared to torso length or vice versa...are your shoulders narrow, regular or wide...etc)...but I am pretty happy with the fit.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I just ordered the pattern in my size! (they're all $1.49 right now)
