Just wanted to show the completed Jacket and skirt. Sorry there are no pictures of me in it. I wore it to church Sunday and received many compliments. Here are the details:
Pattern Description:Loose-fitting,lined jacket has self ruffles, shoulder pads, princess seams, softly gathered sleeve cap with two sleeve options and snap closing.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope: Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow: Yes
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the ruffles and the easy styling.
Fabric used: Not sure, but it is possibly a rayon. It was easy to work with. I bought it at a Joann's sale last year. I think this color is referred to as "celadon".
Pattern alterations or any design changes: None
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I might make View B. It's the pink version above. I do recommend to others.
Conclusion: This pattern has snap closures. This was an easy to sew pattern and I think it would look great with a skirt or slacks.
Completed 2 pc. suit on dress form.
The skirt is mention in the previous post. It's a straight skirt with back zipper and slit from OOP V1330. It is lined and has darts on the front and back and has a waistband. I'm sure I'll be using that one again for future skirts.
Next up: a color block dress from McCalls. Happy Sewing!
