Jack and Jill Jacket Pattern Review

So like I mentioned, I tested two patterns about two weeks ago. They are both being released this week and so I'm highlighting them on the blog. The first up is this jacket. My daughter loves this jacket and so it was worth all the time and effort. I used a ruffle fabric so I had to pin like crazy to make sure the ruffles were laying in the right direction as I sewed, which slowed me down. It was worth it in the end.

Pattern Description: Jack & Jill Jacket from Modkid Boutique.  A unisex zip up jacket featuring a large side wrap-around pocket, a fully lined hood with drawstring, and a lined bodice for extra comfort and warmth. 

Pattern Sizing:
I made the 4T and it was a perfect fit for my girl.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done with it?

Were the instructions easy to follow? They were. And she has great illustrations to go with. I didn't pin baste the zipper but instead used steam a seam and it worked out great. There's a free craftsy class on zippers and that's where I learned that trick. 

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? The pattern is great and my daughter LOVES the jacket and LOVES the pockets. She was very concerned about the pockets during the whole sewing process. It takes a while to put a lined jacket together and if you try to do it in one sitting it can be a bit overwhelming, but if you spread it out over a couple sewing sessions it's no big deal and you'll have a fun jacket to show for it.

  1. What the what??? You are amazing - My mind can't even wrap itself around the IDEA of making this, let alone actually making it. Can you make one for an adult? :) Cuz I may need one!
