Pattern Description: Misses Coordinating wardrobe, skirt, jacket, pants

Pattern Sizing: 8-18. I made the 12

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.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the peplum and this jacket didn't have a collar

Fabric Used: a woven polyester

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I added about 2 inches to the back of the peplum, a button (instead of hook & eye), and lining. I also added pellon to the front bottom part of the peplum facing.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, and Yes.

Conclusion: I liked this pattern because it was a fairly quick fix to a jacket in need. I chose plaid, but that is something that I will have to think about before I make this again. I also lined the jacket which was a task because it took me a while to figure out how to make it go with the facing. Once I got that issue resolved, it was smooth sailing from there. I also wanted the front of the peplum to softly stand out away from the body. I faced it with feather weight pellon. My Mom loves it and I'm happy about that.
