I am a self taught designer, having spent many hours researching and reading about the skills needed to learn clothing design. Having had much experience sewing, gave me a lot of knowledge about how clothing is constructed, which is an essential skill in being able to design. Experience knitting, gave me the tools I needed to master knitting techniques and be able to shape the fabric in the way I want. Learning is an ongoing pastime, there are always new techniques to master.
I design clothing for children up to about 10 years and also adults.
I have been published in Universal Yarns, Willow Yarns, One Skein Wonders for Babies, as well as various online magazines and self published designs.
This little jacket is the perfect finishing touch to the Rainbow Sundress, making it a wonderful set for special occasions. Waist length, with a square neck in front to match the dress, and 3/4 3/4 length sleeves. Worked from the bottom up in one piece, for a seamless design and minimal finishing.
This versatile jacket, with the matching jumper, would also be wonderful in cooler months, if made in wool.
There is a matching sundress to go with this pattern - Rainbow Sundress. I have also made both patterns into an eBook at a discounted price - Rainbow eBook. Check my other patterns for details.
