I’m an experienced home sewer. I found the pattern easy to follow and true to size. I’m 5’3″ and 120 lbs and I made size 8. It looks just like the drawing and the photos. I used a soft sweatshirt fleece. I also appreciated the .pdf download considering the distance from here to Australia. 5 stars out of 5. I also bought a coat pattern from Style Arc and I feel much more comfortable undertaking it after this positive experience.
