  • Basic Sewing Skills, as my directions - incuding AUDIO directions with photos of each step are SO complete!

Pattern Description:

These 2 jacket designs are based on the concept of a unique center front design. The 'SWIRL JACKET' features an added underlap. The 'WEDGE JACKET' is an angular design created by adding a 'wedge' at the right front edge of covered polar fleece. The lower ribbing is utilized for a neck-hugging collar and left front finish, and a VERY long length is achieved by adding yokes cut from polar fleece.
As proven with the black SWIRL JACKET, these designs can easily be executed out of a full-bodied double knit as well as a top quality sweatshirt as the base.
