Hooded Jacket pattern review

Finally getting some sewing other then underwear done.

This week I sewed up Whimsy Couture's Hooded Jacket. I have been eyeing it off for a while and bought the fabric for it weeks ago. 

The pattern pieces print on only 16 pages - which is fantastic for PDF patterns.

I sewed up a size 3. From printing to having it sewn up it took about 2 hours. I waited and did the buttons the next day; my Brother sewing machine recently had it and I have been borrowing a friend's cheapie Elna 21. I have bought a gorgeous vintage 1980 Bernina 801 - I am just waiting for it to get back from the shop. But all of that is another blog entry.

If I made it again I would change the pockets, they are very cute though. The buttons worked out fine - If I were to make it 100% reversible - easy to do as there are no exposed seams - I would sew buttons on both sides.

Pattern: Whimsy Couture Hooded Jacket
Lining Fabric: Blue Arctic Fleece from Spotlight
External fabric: Sarah Fielke "On the pond weeds - Green"
