Pattern Description:
Zip-front jacket or hoodie with front pockets in princess seam and self-fabric cuffs and hem bands and stylish topstitching.

Pattern Sizing:
Womens Size 4-22. Also includes girls sizes.

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?
This was the first time I made a Jalie pattern, so I was not used to the way a Jalie pattern is laid out. It was easy to follow once I figured it out! The written directions are separately printed from the visual directions.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I wanted a jacket that looked exactly like this. I was so glad I found a pattern that was exactly what I was looking for.

Fabric Used:
Fleece-lined activewear knit from Fabric Mart. (No longer available.)

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I did not make any changes to the jacket.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes!

Conclusion:
The pattern came together really easily. Mostly all of the seams are top-stitched for a great ready-to-wear look. I chose to line the pockets with a lighter weight knit, rather than selecting the same fabric I used for the jacket. You can read about my jacket on my blog.

Very professional job on this jacket! Your topstitching is perfect. Looks like a RTW jacket!
