Pattern Sizing: I cut size 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Not really cuz I changed it..lol
Were the instructions easy to follow? Dont really know because I didnt use them.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? well I had this idea in my head of what I wanted my coat to look like and this pattern had the top part right :) so I used that as my base
Fabric Used: wonderful wool blend I got in NY i think.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Well, I added length..lol, I fully lined it so I used the pattern pieces (modified ones) to create the lining and facings. I added two large patch pockets and a leather belt buckle thingy.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I wont sew it again but if you like it you can easily modify this one.
Conclusion: love it, it is just what I had in my head.
