Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it ? I think so
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions were very easy to follow.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern ? The pattern is very simple and according to the pattern could be made within and hour.
Pattern alterations or any design you made ? I lined the cotton fabric using fleece, I also used the fleece as the pocket. I turned the back neck, front bodice and the sleeve facing inside out using the fleece. The fleece fabric gave it a bulky look which is what I was going for. I didn’t use the belt in the pattern.
Would you sew it again ? Yes I will sew it again in different varieties trying out different fabrics.
Would you recommend it to others? This is a very easy pattern. If you can sew a straight line, you can easily put this together.
NOTE: I cut 1 piece each of fabric and fleece and serge them together using it as a piece.
