It wasn’t easy!!, when it was described as a difficult pattern I thought that it would mean that it had pockets, which I can do anyway. I suppose the clue was that there was only one other finished project for this pattern on the site!
Using a mid blue polyester with a bright blue lining, I’ve followed the pattern completely, except for one small point — The cuff buttons work!.
My tip for anyone attempting this themselves is to make sure that you cut the material very accurately, bast everything before stiching and follow the instructions carefully. The instructions are complete, but not really as helpful as they could be.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
