    Good pattern for beginners

    This pattern is very well designed, the paper is of excellent quality and thick which I found makes it easier to trace the pattern for my chosen size. The instructions come in an A4 sized book with lots of detailed drawings explaining different steps. There are lots of examples of stitches, seams etc which are useful for beginners. What I did miss was an indication on the pattern of where to shorten/lengthen. And following the instructions I found that it would have been better to overlock all the edges first to get neater finish around the pockets- although since that's on the inside, you don't see it but still, it would look nicer. Sizing is pretty big and as I'm only 1,58m I had to shorten it quite a bit.
