Tan/Rust Sweater Up-Cycle Jacket - Misses Large 

 

For a quick video about this garment, click on the 2nd frame (with play arrow) below the large first garment photo above. 

 

This jacket combines 3 different sweaters:  one a man's tweedy neutral for the main body, a dark brown cable sweater's ribbing forms the front collar and the body of the sweater goes across the back yoke, ad a rust wool sweater (that has been waswhed to 'felt') creates the rust cuffs, side godets, and trim.  A tan boucle yarn has been added to the rust trim.  the copper clasp closure is a $30 piece that I convinced myself I no longer needed.  It is a GREAT closure, hand-made by an artisan I worked with for awhile - perfect for sweater type closures, as the 'prong' has to penetrate the fabric.  The cuffs are felted, so 'tight', but my arm is fine in it, and I have huge hands that fit through, and a forearm measuring 10.25" where the top of the cuff would 'hit'.  See care Recommendation below.

Because of this felted trim, I recommend machine washing on cool, delicate, line drying, and then steaming and stretching the cuff area - OR, be real safe and dryclean.
