Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
It looked exactly like the photo!
Were the instructions easy to follow?
The instructions were very easy and clear- I made this jacket with the accompanying crafsty.com course taught by Janet Pray, where she shows you exactly how to make this jacket step-by-step. The online course was amazing and really informative, and the pattern instructions that come with the pattern were also very clear.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I love everything about this pattern, I love the casual fit and the welt pockets in the front, as well as all the seam lines and topstitching.
Light-weight, non-stretch denim & patterned cotton chintz for the yokes and inside cuffs.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
I lengthened the sleeves by 2 1/2 inches.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
I'm already planning my next one out of a brighter fabric! I would recommend this to anyone, even beginner sewers because you can learn a lot of techniques from this jacket but it's very clear- especially when you take the craftsy course.
I thought this was great and I'm excited to wear it this spring!! I did a longer and more detailed post about this on my blog -with more pictures!
