The belt was a feature of the pattern during the testing phase, but is not included in the finished pattern. It would be an easy addition to do on your own though, if you like the look of it. (My daughter loves the belt. ;) )
The Good: Great design that is perfect for a trendy girl who loves custom style. Layered sizes, large size range, clean to the point instruction, fully lined with all seams enclosed, and professional results.
The Bad: I wish I would have sized up so she could get extra time out of this. It's slim fitting and a crop length, so if in doubt, size up! However, the pattern did run true to size for us and the pattern does state to size up to use as outerwear. My daughter tends to just wear a tank top under this and wears it like a cardigan instead of a jacket.
The Ugly: I can't say we have any! With how much use this jacket has seen, it's safe to say, it's a hit. And, it has been through the washer and dryer more than a dozen times and it still looks great! So go back and add sturdy construction to the list of good.
