Every woman needs a jacket to complete her look, and this one fits all the bills. Make it up in knit velvet or a sweater knits for cold weather wear or try it in stretch lace or cotton jersey for warm weather.
There are only TWO PATTERN PIECES: the front/back and the sleeve. There are only TWO sets of SEAMS TO SEW: the shoulder seams and armscyes. Finish the edges, and you're done.
The sweeping, swingy lower edge of the jacket forms a perfect half circle, which drapes gracefully around the figure and swings as you walk.
Complete materials list and construction instructions are included for several exciting design variations to finish the opening edges and hems: finish with a simple serger rolled hem, a conventional topstitched hem, add a facing to the opening edges, add a contrast bias band (as shown in the pictures) with decorative hand stitched accents, or add your choice of trim to the hem and opening edges.
This pattern really does fit all plus sizes: note that the sample photos are shown on both a 1X and a 6X dress form!
This design has it all: easy fit, super fast construction, creative opportunities, and lots of swingy, flattering, vertical lines!
