Butterick 5088 View B
Pattern Sizing: I cut a size 8
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? The jacket is super easy to put together so I didnt use the instructions I just read through them once before starting.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love the look of View B which is the one I made.
Fabric Used: 100% camel color wool
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: I didnt change much I just added two things. The first being the tabs from View A which I like so I used them on my version and I added an inside welt pocket to the lining just because I felt like it..lol
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? No because I have so much more I want to sew but it was a fin coat to make.
Conclusion: I love this jacket it came out perfect.
I lined it with a silk essence in chocolate brown from Joanns
The sleeves with the tabs on

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like this pattern because it is fast and looks really cute!
Fabric Used: Brushed Corduroy
Pattern Alterations or any design changes you made: None for Vest, for my pants I made a simple waistband and used a small self covered button. No back pockets because I wanted a smooth backside..lol
