    Smitten Jacket - love it!

    Thought this might be a step beyond my sewing ability but I needn’t have worried, Kate’s instructions are excellent. It went together so well as I followed the guidelines step by step. I’m so happy with my Smitten. The style, look and fit are exactly what I was hoping for. I will definitely be making more 😊.

    Smitten Cropped Jacket

    I have made a toile using an orphan sheet. I did each step slowly to avoid missing any detail. I am very happy with how it came together. For the first time ever I used decorative stitching detail. I made the cropped tall version with cuffed sleeves and elasticised waist band. I will use linen to make the next one with the other band. It is a very well written pattern. Thank you.

    Great pattern, brilliant instructions

    My first Smitten and definitely not my last. Loved the pattern, found the instructions and accompanying photos clear and easy to follow - and the result is stylish and very wearable. Thank you PE x
