A word about Leslie’s “I’m Wearing My Quilt” © Pattern Collection. Her patterns are designed to be the “canvas” on which artists create their own masterpieces. The patterns are printed in three (3) size ranges – Size A (XS, S, M); Size B (L, XL, 1X); and Size C (2X, 3X, 4X). You are encouraged to trace the desired size on pattern paper instead of cutting the original pattern.
If you have doubts about the fit of the jacket or if you are a “between” size, it is suggested that you trace the next size larger, cut it out in muslin, baste the pieces together and try it on to see how it fits. You can make adjustments on the muslin and it can be used as your permanent pattern for future use.
