This week I managed to get some sewing done! Yay! I am busy working on Lillon’s Easter dress, but I decided I needed a break from it to test an awesome little jacket pattern from Pumpkin and Bunny– the Lily. It was love at first sight when I saw it pop up in my fb news feed! It was just what I had been looking for to go over my girl’s sleeveless dresses to keep them warm in the cooler months.
The pattern is a cropped jacket with long, mutton sleeves. It has a steampunk feel to me! The fit is really good on it. The sleeves are snug, but not too tight. There is lots of nice topstitching detail. All of the seams are enclosed, so the inside looks good, too.
For the technical details…the seams are 3/8″. The pattern pieces are layered, so you only print the sizes you want to print. The pattern instructions are well laid out and easy to follow. It uses clear photos for the tutorial. If you need any help or want to see more you can join her pattern group on fb. Guess, what??? It is FREE. I think there has been as much or more detail put into this free pattern as a paid one. The Pumpkin and Bunny Lily pattern designer gets an A+ in my book! Get your free Lily pattern!
