Pattern Description:
6231 Misses' Skirt, Pants & Peplum Jackets
Pattern Sizing:
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I made a size 10, even the sizing chart would indicate a 12 for my measurements. It turned out huge, too wide at the shoulders and a very long waist, like it was made for a very tall woman. I am 1.68 meters so im not petite but it was still huge.
Fabric Used:

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I would have to narrow the shoulders, shorten the waist and take 1-2 cm everywhere since it was too large. The sizing chart should be revisited
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I dont think i will sew it again. Yes i would recommend it, if you are very tall and with a big bone structure.
Its a nice design, but the pattern was not good for me.
