Sizing: 12 (bust ease 46.5”)
Fabric: polyester wool outer with polyester lining inner
Were the instructions easy to follow? The instructions are very easy to understand.
Modification: I did have reservations when it came to setting the pocket into the front seam which is curved. For the most part, I followed the directions exactly and made sure to accurately transfer the pattern markings. One change I did make during the pocket assembly was to stitch the pocket lining to the front using a 1/4” seam, so when I flipped to the right side there was no hard lining edge where the pocket was since the rest of the seam is finished with a 5/8” seam.
The other aspect that I changes was the back darting. There was too much poof since the darts are not completely tacked down. Well, I tacked dart in place and like it much better.
Would you recommend it to others? Yes, it is a nice jacket that has a lot of potential.
Would you sew it again? No, one is enough.
