I skipped the ruffles as my fabric is already too busy. I’m usually a 38-40 but after measuring the pattern I decided to cut 36 and my seam allowances were a bit more than 5/8, so this pattern runs large.
I also removed 2 cm in length, one from the bust and another one from the waist. This is standard for me as I am petite.
The instructions were mostly easy to follow, there are some drawings too, but the button band and collar insertion are a bit confusing. For the button band you need to finish half of the top part and then you sew that collar up to that point, but the drawing shows the the collar up to the edge of the front.
30 select jacket and coat patterns are now marked down to $3.99.
