Rated 4 out of 5 by Designer_Reyn from Very easy and looks great I bought this pattern to make a blazer and shorts for my works holiday Christmas party. The pattern was very easy to follow and I didn't have any problems. A few improvements I wish would happen: First and foremost, I wish the jacket was fully lined instead of just an interlining. I backed the fashion fabric with a broadcloth for extra stability along with Fusi Knit because if you don't the jacket would be too light weight if you make it out of a novelty print as in the photos. Also, the waist band of the pants comes in pieces rather than just one piece which is for fitting purposes; I get it, but its really not necessary so I combined them and just made 1 long waist band instead along with belt loops that the pattern lacks. Despite the needed changes, the jacket and shorts came out great and will be using this pattern again in the future.
