Overall I love this pattern. There is a huge range of sizes which is great as I have grandchildren who range from 2 months to 10 years.
Being a unisex pattern makes it even better.
However, I do feel the instructions could have been a little more detailed and the photographs improved. In some of the photographs it was very difficult to see the detail, this being the case with the welt pocket instructions.
Overall tho, a great jacket pattern.

This jacket style is not available in the commercial pattern books so this was a great find. I made one in denim without sleeves to match an American Doll pattern my granddaughter selected. I just finished the armholes with bias tape. Then for the other granddaughter who loves pink, I wanted to use pink denim but found courderoy instead. Put the sleeves in this one. Both are very cute.
The pattern and instructions were easy to follow. Just remember that the band and cuffs are rectangles with no pattern. I didn't sew them together until after attaching to the jacket or sleeve to ensure clean edges.
I expect I will be using this pattern again in the future.

My son wanted to be a rock star for Halloween this year. He wanted a leather jacket. I used this pattern for it. He didn't want any buttons or cuffs or pockets for it, so that is how I made it. Loved this pattern. It was so easy and a quick sew. It was exactly what he wanted for his costume!!
Thank you for such a great pattern!!

Every time my daughter wears her Dakota Denim Jacket people are amazed that I made it. I used twill and plan to make one in corduroy come fall. I had problems attaching the jeans buttons, but that was my fault and not the pattern's directions. Next time I will use regular buttons or snaps to make it even easier. The finished results are very professional.

This is definitely not a beginner pattern. It has excellent directions, but you need to bring your own patience. The multiple panels give the coat a store bought look. I've made one in a stretch denim and one in a corduroy. There are great ways to add pops of personality and color to the coat.
