Pattern Description:

You will look great coming and going with this wardrobe builder!

A unique Celtic knot graces the back of the garment while dramatic lapels fold on the front.

The design uses an interesting construction method: The back is made in one trapezoidal piece, then the lapel and lower edging are picked up and worked circularly.

Best of all, there are no seams! How's that for easy and fast finishing?!?!

Pattern includes useful how tos and clear illustrations for all unusual techniques.
