Product Review (submitted on April 4, 2011):
I only bought this pattern recently, but have made it four times already, in several sizes for my family, as it comes in such a huge size range. The fit is true to size, not too baggy with great arm length. Those who wish to layer it over other garments beyond t-shirt weight might wish to go up a size or two, but I like the closer fit as it results in a warmer garment and doesn't make the wearer look like a sack of potatoes!! The topstitching gives a great ready-to-wear look but still didn't take up too much extra time as it was all straight lines. My only (minor) dislike is the lack of facing behind the zip. The collar is faced/doubled which encloses the zip, but the rest of the zip back, where it is inserted in the bodice part, is visible when the zip is undone and collar opened out. A bit of facing would make this look so much more professional and just top off a fantastic garment. That being said, it is something easily done by many with sewing experience, and it should not prevent anyone from buying the pattern. Be aware though, that this is a unisex pattern, so females who wish more shape to their garments will need to alter the pattern to suit. I love it because the pattern services my whole family without being restricted to just the girls.
