I bought this pattern awhile back but didn’t make it … after my first one, I’m convinced it’s my new favorite jacket! There are so many different ways to make it for different looks - I chose the lined hooded version. The fit is excellent … while the sleeves are slightly long, that makes them perfect for rolling up to show off a coordinating lining. Instructions are clear, even with all the available options. I already have several ideas for other jackets to make using different options.
easy to follow instructions and as a beginner when it comes to dolls clothes it came together really easy and looks great in all kinds of fabric
This was one of the most successful patterns for my dolls. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Even using vinyl fabric for a leather look came out great! I decided to line the jacket with a bright fabric so it can be worn by either one of the girls or the guy in my collection. My only problem came because I was in such a hurry: I didn't measure the sleeve length, so the sleeves are slightly long. Oh, well, no doll hands will get cold while they are wearing this jacket. My next jacket will be made of ultra suede for a more fashionable look. I can't wait!
Clear instructions, quite a few options. Fit is perfect. Love this pattern.
