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?

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!

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!
