Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
Super easy. Two pages of instructions and if you don't count the language translations and the glossary terms, instructions would easily fit on just one page.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
Of course I love the big collar and the asymmetrical front closure.
The main black fabric was some cheap polar fleece that was used as packing material from a recent e-bay purchase I made (I'm sure it's the cheapest stuff out there, but I couldn't let it go to waste!). Stripe fabric on the sleeves is a cotton/poly knit. Polka dot collar is also a polar fleece. Pocket is a cotton knit.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I made a size XS and it is very roomy. No fitting darts in this pattern!
I could have easily taken in a few inches on each side to make it a little smaller, but I kind of like the roomy factor. It is very comfy to wear.
For the zipper - I didn't want just a plain zip so I combined a white zipper and a black zipper to make one zip. Luckily, I had separating zippers in my stash that the teeth matched so it worked. I also added polka dot ribbon to the sides of the front next to the zipper.
The front seemed a bit plain, so I added a pocket with a flap and button to it as well.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and yes.
A uniquely styled jacket that is comfortable to wear. More views and details of the pocket construction are on my blog.
