Ragfinders Jacket #26 $12.00
Loose-fitting unlined jacket sewing pattern that looks great in every size, a great way to put together luscious fabrics collected over years with easy asymmetric strip-piecing. Fewer fabrics may be chosen for a simpler look. Pointy collar & pockets, back pleat detail, 4 pretty motifs (leaf, kite, spiral, star) given for yoke applique. Multi-sized up to 60″ bust.
