Q&A with Mrs mel

Simple Sewer asked:
I like your jacket too and Pink is my favorite color. What pattern does the class use and size? I'm a Petite 4'8" lady.
Mrs mel answered:
It is an islander sewing systems class and the pattern comes with the purchase. You pay $49 for the class and the pattern is mailed to you free. Since it actually costs $22 that adds up to a pretty good deal. It is an awesome class. Janet is so clear and concise, if you follow the instructions you turn out a perfect jacket. I am 5'3" petite and was worried about the fit but other than shortening the sleeve a bit (I have really short arms) it is a perfect fit. I was worried about all the fitting problems i usually have in regular patterns but it worked for my shoulders, length and circumference perfectly. I have received many compliments and love it when people ask me where i bought it. It is so freeing not to use pins.
