S2443: Jacket (the dress is on the sewing table as we speak)
Pattern Description: Cynthia Rowley Collection. Misses' dress sewing pattern with knit bodice and jacket or vest.
Pattern Sizing: I cut a 6
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes it did
Were the instructions easy to follow? Super easy except for the placket, I used my own method.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved this pattern when I saw it, I liked it so much I paid full price for it..lol, I am not patient so I didn't want to wait until Joann had a sale. I finished the jacket and I am working on the dress now.
Fabric Used: I used a double knit even though it suggest a lightweight batik or similar but I knew if I made sure to trim my SA and interface correctly I could avoid any bulk and I did.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None. There is no lining in this pattern so U used ribbon to hide my SA's next time I think I will draft a lining.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I will sew it once more and I do recommend it!
Conclusion: It is really a cute jacket, pics don't do it justice.
