Purple Heather Women's Jacket & Sleeveless Top Twin Set  (14-16) 

 

To develop a sewing pattern, one must create many garments - both for design and marketing.  This is one of those projects.  I did wear it to film a segment of my DVD on sewing knit fabrics which you can find HERE.  Otherwise, it is brand new and in perfect condition.  The fabric is a polyester knit that has 2 sides, or at least 2 me, it does - which is great fun to create with.  If you look closely at the close-up photos, you can see that the shoulder seams and trim around the neckline and front edges and also a band at the cuff are of the 'revere' side of this soft knit fabric.  In addition, I've accented the neckline, front, and cuffs with a beautiful yarn couched to the surface of the garment.  Believe it or not - this garment  (even with the trim) is completely washable.  The button is of fimo clay, but I've had no trouble in washing garments with these either - though it is a bit of a risk.  The matching sleeveless shell has nice snug armholes and neckline due to my 'snappy clean' finish that utilizes elastic for a long life and good fit.  The hem of the shell is created with a cut edge band of the fabric - just for a detail.  Raw cut edges are part of this garment - at all of the edges except for the jacket lower hem.  This is a great, current construction technique in very high quality garments where the fabric supports this application.  The jacket may be worn both closed, or open.  The pattern I was developing is Twin Set Tweaks, available HERE (link to PDF Download, and printed IS still available at this time, though on close-out.)  Sleeves are 3/4 length.
