    First time is very time consuming, especially for techniques (you) haven’t been used before, but the end result is totally worth it, and gets quicker each time you do it!! With so many sleeve options it’s a brilliant value for money!! I love how all the seams are hidden.

    It’s easier than it looks.

  14. Kimberly Richardson (verified owner)

    This pattern definitely pushed my abilities but I am so happy with the finished product, and I learned a new sewing technique. The directions are very clear and helpful and I would recommend this pattern to anyone who is looking to up their sewing game.

    Great pattern with clear instructions. Make a classic demin jacket or spice it up with sleeve options.

  16. Lim Boon Kuan (verified owner)

    It’s a great pattern. I learnt soooo much, which I couldn’t have possibly done it so efficiently without such detailed instructions and pictures. That said, it’s not exactly a quick sew, but it’s a beautiful piece of art if cut accurately n sewn precisely. The result – i was like WOOHOOOOO!

  17. Loren Biggs (verified owner)

    It has lots of options. Time consuming but worth it! Will stretch your sewing abilities.

  18. Lisa Lazenby (verified owner)

    It has versatility in terms of fabric choices, options and uses. The finishing is wonderful and you won’t believe how great it looks when you’re finished. No one will suspect it’s homemade!

  19. Beth Hrachovina

    Love the final product and not a bad sew at all! Also like that the jacket can be used for dress or casual.

  20. Deborah Ellenden

    Fashionable jacket, takes a little longer to put together but has quality finishes and looks great finished.
