Pattern Description: A cover-up jacket from the car to the gym

Pattern Sizing: S to XXL

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? My project was different from the photos because I intentionally made it that way.

Were the instructions easy to follow? yes

Fabric Used: I bought this linear spandex solid/sheer fabric from an ETA buying trip in NY.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I used a large size and added 4" ease in the front for a D cup. I only had 2 yards so I modified the hood- none of it is noticeable. I left out the ribbed trim and added a gathered waist and sleeve to my own liking.

Would you sew it again? Yes, it was super easy. Very little fit issues. It was simple enough so I could decide on my own design issues.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes- you can follows the directions or modify as it suits you

Conclusion: I started with the wonderful fabric. Decided to make a gym cover up. I used the most appropriate pattern in my stash. And of course, I couldn't wait to use my newly upgraded Ovation serger for this project.
