Qualicum Beach, ...
I made this jacket in class at school and it ended up taking longer than I had expected it to take. I had difficulty with the instructions because they were unclear, not in ordered and there were no picture references. I made my jacket in a size 40 because I was adding in a fur lining so i didn’t want the jacket to be too tight. The jacket is very moveable, and would be perfect for spring weather. The jacket is very detailed with a lot of topstitching. If you aren’t one for buttons and tiny details then this jacket isn’t for you. Another pain of this pattern is that you have to add seam allowance onto every single piece. Gets heinous but at least they warn you of that before hand. Overall I’d give the pattern itself a 3/5 but the finished product is a 5/5. Beautiful Jacket = tons of work.
