McCalls 4041

Finally got the hubby to take a few pictures this past weekend of a few different things I have made in the past month. Sorry about the fuzzy pictures I really need a new camera.
McCalls 4041

Pattern Description:

MISSES' LINED JACKETS: Lined jackets A, B, C, D, E have princess seams, trim and two-piece sleeve variations with optional hook and eye closure; jackets A, B, D have patch pockets; jackets C, E have flaps; jacket E has bands; separate pattern pieces provided for A/B, C, D cup sizes.

Pattern Sizing:

6-14 I used the size ten.

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

Yes the shape looks like the picture on the envelope front.

Were the instructions easy to follow?

The instructions when easy enough to follow nothing confusing.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

I love this pattern because it has the different cup sizes in the patterns. No need to do a FBA yea!

Fabric Used:

I used Boulce.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

No alterations where need it fit great right out of the enevelope. The only thing I did was to interface the body of the jacket just so make it a little more stable. It also make working the bonlce a little easier

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

I would recomment it to others. I may sew it againg.


Fun jacket I really enjoyed making it.
