Current Tags What is a Tag:
Fabric:Denim  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Sizing: I made the 3x. Pattern is for xxl to 6x (Connie Crawford sizing)

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like that it came in my size! The sleeves were set strangely and were short, like the photo on the pattern, but I thought they'd be longer given I don't have model length arms.

Fabric Used: Black stretch denim in a strange 50" width.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I top-stitched in areas not indicated; trimmed the sides down below waist to fit my apple shape better.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I will sew it again as I plan on making a goretex jacket for next fall.

Nice jacket. Did you have to lengthen the sleeves?

Very cute pattern and looks good on you...inspires me to try a jacket. (Zippers still scare me!)

I didn't lengthen the sleeves because I assumed they'd be long enough--I never have the problem of too short sleeves in RTW! I'll leave them as they are in this version. Thanks for the comments! The zipper instructions were not the greatest, IMO, so I just made it work on my own.

Nice job! I'm working on a Connie Crawford pattern now and the sleeve is SO SHORT! I think it's a CC thing.
