I would say I’m competent with my sewing machine however definitely a beginner, I’ve made a quilt and a few pillowcases before jumping in at the deep end and trying this pattern. The outcome was amazing! I made the men’s Forester Coat for my husband and it fits him so well. I was able to modify the sleeves to make them the right length (I think it’s the first thing he’s owned that has sleeves long enough for his gangly arms!). The instructions were super clear, pictures were great but I loved the video tutorials - watching someone else complete the steps made it really easy for me to understand. So it really is for beginners! So happy I took the plunge.
I hardly ever sew for my other half so when I do it needs to something special, and this is it. Perfect for keeping warm over winter. The instructions included are easy to follow and the photographs are clear.
