Style tip: Check the design ease. If less fullness is preferred, our tester recommends making a smaller size.

Cutting Line Designs: Fun with Fabrics 51509

Louise Cutting designed this top and jacket with dropped shoulders, hem bands with side vents, and three-quarter or full-length sleeves. The hip-length top has a bias-bound neckline, sleeves with a turnback hem, and button closures at the side vents. The jacket, in hip or mid-thigh length, has wide front bands forming lapels, and sleeves finished with bands. It is a great design to showcase creative fabric combinations. The detailed instructions include technique and construction hints. Soft fabrics are recommended, such as four-ply silk, washed linen, soft cotton, and Tencel. The sample top is linen.

(Sized XS-XL for busts 30-48 in.)

Style Tip: Check the design ease. If less fullness is preferred, our tester recommends making a smaller size.
