Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? no, but i only used it as a basis for my jacket
Were the instructions easy to follow? i ended up looking at the line drawing to figure this one out, the instructions were so-so
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? my son wanted a jacket sort of in the style of a snowboarding jacket, and this seemed to have the best basic body shape
Fabric Used: a medium weight corduroy from kaufman and minky for the lining
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: my son is tall, broad shouldered and lanky. going by his measurements i had to take the body in about 4 inches. the sleeves were too short so i added cuffs. i left off the shoulder decorations, the lower patch pockets and the pocket flaps. i did leave the front seam inset pockets. i only put snaps on and did not install the inside zipper. if he still wants a zipper i can add it later.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? no, not sewing this one again as it was a gift and a one of a kind. i am a fast sewer and this took me forever.
Conclusion: i thought this came out pretty good but certainly not as good as i had hoped. sewing this jacket is not for the faint of heart. but, all that matters is my son liking it. i'm hoping it fits but he's not received it in the mail as of this writing. fingers crossed. the minky is a nice warm fuzzy lining and looks really good on the inside, but be warned it leaves little fuzzy things all over your sewing area.
