Genesis PLUS 'grows' the patterns previously known as Genesis and Genesis Too to include execution on a full-bodied double knit fabric as the base of the jacket. The design features a classic cardigan neckline created from either a sweatshirt's lower ribbing, cross grain knit fabric, and combinations of both. The cardigan style offers a wide range of fit across the jacket front from the addition of the center front/neckline bands. For a sweatshirt base, a finished 2XL or 3XL size uni-sex sweatshirt is utilized as 'fabric + matching ribbing'. Directions include adding length at either the yoke or the hemline to suit any length requirements not met in the available sweatshirt 'fabric'. Fitting, good design principles, embellishment techniques, hem widgets, invisible pockets, flip n' stitch piecing, free motion embroidery and much more are packed into this pattern. The comprehensive directions make this style suitable for any sewing skill level.

Mom taught me to sew - then put me on a clothing allowance: $25/MONTH - but that was back in 1966. The ONLY way I could satisfy my clothing appetite was to make it myself. That lead to a major in Home Ec., managing a craft store, custom dressmaking - running my own fabric store/machine dealership from 1990 - 2003, and now I travel the country presenting my classes on creative sewing at sewing expos, guilds, and shops. I have a website: www.londas-sewing.com, blog, facebook, pinterest - all that good stuff and try to do it all - but well. Goal: sharing the love of creative sewing!View all patterns by designer (14) »
