Time to Sew:
Truthfully I sorta lost count since it took so long. I'd imagine it's anywhere from 8-10 hours.
Sewing Ease (scale 1 easy to 10 difficult):
About a 6
Jacket with standard collar and yoke.
Size 12, graded to 14 at the hips.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Were the instructions easy to follow?
For the most part. I skipped some of them and used the advice from my tailoring teacher and other sources.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I LOVED the standing collar and yoke and the topstitching around both!!!
Black stretch cotton twill (a serious lint magnet) and a multicolored charmeuse satin for the lining.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
-Shortened the center back 1"---my usual short waist pattern change
-Omitted pocket bag and used satin fabric to make welts.
-I made buttons visible.
-Lengthened the sleeve about 3"
What would you do differently next time?:
Nothing, I made all the changes I wanted with this version.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes and Yes!
This jacket can be paired with everything from a jacket, dress, skirt, etc....
