Chic Knit Jacket

Threads #191, June/July 2017
Article Image

A fashionable cardigan jacket has been a wardrobe staple for decades and today is worn in settings from professional to dressy to weekend casual. Now you can make a designer jacket from a knit fabric, combining the style and versatility of a structured jacket with the comfort of a sweater. I’ll show you how to adapt a basic T-shirt pattern to create a jacket that rivals costly examples by names like St. John, Escada, and Missoni. You’ll learn how to select a suitable knit fabric, which interfacings to use to support it, how to install a back half lining, how to finish the jacket edges, and how to enhance the garment with statement-making trims.
