Fabric:Rayon Poly Woven  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description: Misses unlined, loose-fitting jacket has collar band and collar, topstitched facing and hem, outside darts, tucked pockets and below elbow length sleeves with wide stitched hem.

Pattern Sizing:Size 8-14. I made View A in a size 14

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

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I like the fittedness created by the darts; didn't care for the number of darts and the way they wanted you to stitch them. Didn't care for the tucks on the pockets either.

Fabric Used: Soft rayon/poly crinkly fabric from Trim Fabrics

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made a size 14 and narrowed the shoulders; I sewed just regular darts and left off the tucks on the pockets

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?<
Such a unique style of jacket that one is all I need so I won't be making it again. It's stylish that I'd recommend it.
