The pattern is not hard. If you have experience sewing period clothing. The extra information on the blog is very helpful and easy to follow. I have used e-patterns in the past that were not this well designed. It was a treat to have everything line up so nicely. My garment is not totally finished because I am using it as an opportunity to learn all the different features on my new embroidery machine. lolol But I definitely recommend this pattern to anyone who loves accurate period clothing. This will be a pattern I will use more than once. The opportunities to modify the shape of the collar and hem are countless. Thank you!!

This was my first experience with an e-pattern and I was very pleased with the directions and ease of assembly, not to mention the savings in price and shipping costs. The pattern itself is a dream to work with! Although it contains a lot of pieces to give it the period accuracy and style, the directions completely outline each step of the construction. The fitting tips and construction images are so helpful. I finished my Sophie Jacket last night and will use this pattern again. Thank you!
Practically purrrrrfect in every way!
