Christine Jonson Travel Trio Three #226

This pattern features a great-looking ensemble with pieces that are easy to sew and comfortable to wear. Top options include a classical raglan tee and a turtleneck top with a contemporary twist featuring a shirred inset at the front yoke. The turtleneck was purposely designed to fit tight so the yoke gathers are pronounced. Contrasting in proportion to the top is the relaxed loose-fitting A-line skirt with large, inset pockets and front princess seams. Tie it all together with the classic wrap. Special tips to guide your process are sprinkled throughout the instruction sheets with additional design options to inspire creativity. When made in complementary fabrics, it provides a mix-and-match wardrobe that will travel well. Drapey and stretch fabrics are recommended.

(Sized 4-22 for busts 26.25-42.75 in. and hips [XS-XL] 37.5-53 in.)
