Spring 2014 Collection: Meet Jade!

Knee Length, Layered Lower Jacket with ruffled cuffs
Made from black slub linen

And last, but certainly not least is the third new design for the spring collection, the Jade Jacket! I know I have said this before but really, THIS ONE is so EASY you won't even believe it! There are only 4 pattern pieces in the whole pattern and only the bolero length is lined. That means there are 6 whole seams in any version you choose! There are NO FACINGS, as the edge is finished with a lining for the bolero length or with a bias binding for the longer lengths.

There are a variety of variations with an optional collar, back detailing, cuffs, and edge finishing. I even went back to my old roots of applique and had some fun with wool felt and hand applique with Pearl 5 cotton thread! (this is for those of you who feel adventurous!). All of the instructions and pieces for completing the applique are included.

I chose a variety of fabrics to make this jacket from, as you will see. Everything from linen to silk to faux fur to KNIT was used to create these jackets! With so many options, you can make this jacket several times and none of them will resemble each other.
