Grape Batik/Silk Trimmed Sweatshirt Makeover
Grape Batik/Silk-Trimmed Sweatshirt Makeover
Another favorite - this 'Genesis' style cardigan jacket features batik and silk trim. It is a style easy-to-wear, and hangs open at the center front. The front neckline edge is created from the re-purposed lower ribbing of the sweatshirt. To make your own, order the PDF pattern booklet Genesis Plus. I taught many design principles to students in classes with this jacket! The machine free-hand quilting on this jacket through the batik is quite nice, if I do say so myself... I did wear this jacket some, so the neckline edge does show some slight fading, but the entire jacket is a 'soft' look anyway. Couched yarn and Fabric Fur bias trim of silk give this jacket wonderful texture. The sleeve length is adjustable with the bias turn-back batik cuffs.
I valued this jacket at $225.00 while using it as a sample.
I would classify this as a size: Medium-Large
