Vogue 8696

Pattern Description: Loose-fitting, tunic length jackets A, B, C have side seam pockets, wide collar forming drape, long sleeves and topstitching detail. A, B: front self-faced, back and sleeves lined. A: self-belt with topstitching. C: unlined, unfinished outer edges, topstitched collar seams, wrong side of fabric will show.

Pattern Sizing: XS-M, I cut the xs front and medium everthing else.

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? Yes, but there is no finishing and the wrong side shows.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I liked the front draping but with a fitted back and sleeve.

Fabric Used: Designer double faced Wool from G Street

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: This jacket runs really big.  I cut the Xs small front and took 5 inches off of the bottom and 3 inches off of the top.  I took another 2 inches off along the front edge.
