Nice pattern for a nice jacket. Being on the tall side I lengthened the body parts by about 25mm. I then looked at the sleeves and had to reduct their girth at the cuff as I only had skinny arms. Fit was great. The steps on the written instructions worked really well although I'm not sure a total beginner would have great success with this garment. Overall very pleased. I used a cotton/elastane fabric which had a bit of stretch in it.
Good instructions and the sew along YouTube video made the sewing of the jacket a breeze. Jacket fitted well. Only alteration I made was to shorten the sleeves by 2”.
For some reason I’d overlooked this pattern until I made the kids Zipper Jacket and realised the strip on the sleeves of that, could be echoed on the trouser legs of this pattern. In other words a custom made tracksuit!
So two days later, a test tracksuit is almost finished. Fabulous pattern: beautiful fit - clear instructions: nice size pockets - 100% recommended for your child or grandchild.
I’m really happy with this pattern: downloaded yesterday and only have the zip to insert now. I’ve made exactly the version in the main photograph for the pattern: so a contrast strip up the sleeves and the under collar: grey main parts: black ribbing cuffs and bottom and black zip. It’s so successful I’ve bought the jogging trouser pattern and my granddaughter will have a great tracksuit - the same contrast strip will go down the trouser legs.
I'm in the middle of sewing this top and so far the process is very easy. I can't wait to finish it so I can show it off to my friends.
I absolutely love this pattern, I made both a shirt and a dress and I love them both. They are perfect for breastfeeding my baby in, but still having a modest neckline without having to wear a lot of layers. I think this might be my new favorite pattern ❤️
This was the second pattern I downloaded form WBM and was so easy to follow. The shirt, made for my grandson, came out brilliantly and was a real pleasure to follow both the written instrucitons and the video tutorial. Learnt a lot about bagging out and collars. Recommended.
So many pj pants pants I looked at had very wide legs. These are the best and only one pattern piece.
I have just made a Piper Tunic for a friend. I made View C although I changed the neck line to a Vee neck and added a flounce to 3/4 sleeves. I will be making one for myself shortly. It’s a very easy pattern to make up with great instructions.
I bought the polo pattern not intending at this stage to make a traditional jersey polo shirt. I wanted to make a more typical short-sleeved shirt in a woven cotton fabric with a polo placket. With some encouragement I combined pattern pieces from the Tropical Shirt including the yoke, with the placket and collar from the polo. I also extended the placket and sewed it on with the right on outside and left inside the shirt. In my mock up the sleeves were a little short so I took the Jensen Shirt sleeve and copied the top from the Tropical Shirt sleeve to fit the armscye. All in all the experiment was a success!
I am a beginner when it comes to pattern editing/creating but I found with a bit of care and thought it is rewarding, and easy to mix and match with wardrobe by me's patterns.
Comes together beautifully.
The PDF file was easy to open and access. The instructions and video look very informative. I won’t be making the fleece until later in the year. When I have made it I will post a further review
I love the shape of this costume. It's really flattering and so comfortable. Will definitely make more.
Love this pattern. I made the shirt and I loved the instruktions from the YouTube video.
I'm from Germany- so sorry about my english. I searched hard for this pattern. It was not easy to find one with this comfy buttsolution. The instructions are easy to understand, the sewing was also an easy thing and i'm a beginner. I love the boxers.I wear them in bed and now my husband ordered one too.
Definitly will sew more of them!
