Project Sewing Workshop-Yvonne Porcella Cardigan Jacket

This ample-size jacket with artistic offerings is pure fun. With this pattern, you are the designer. The square pieces offer a large canvas for play, providing the beginner to advanced sewer many options. Distinguishing features include a variety of neckline options, pockets, and the optional long and extended front. The unique pattern instructions are written in a small booklet that lists the techniques on the inside cover, a glossary of sewing terms inside the back cover, and sewing instruction in between. A supply list is provided within the pattern, and kits containing wool and silk fabrics, buttons, and wool roving for embellishment also can be purchased from the Sewing Workshop.

(Sized S-L for busts 51-63 in.)

Style Tip: This jacket offers a perfect opportunity to try new embellishment techniques.
