Description

A cross between a blazer and a cardigan, this chic, unlined jacket is semifitted, slightly cropped, and includes several unique features: a cutaway silhouette, cut-on sleeves, a sleeve gusset for better movement and fit, and a gentle stand-up collar. With no set-in sleeve and no closures, this style is fun and easy to sew as well as versatile to wear. The cut-out V-notch at the back hem adds a little extra style, and the pattern is great for color blocking. This style includes cup sizes with added bust darts for C and D cups to help you get a perfect fit.

Suggested Fabrics

This pattern works best with medium- to heavyweight woven fabrics like denim, canvas, wool coating, jacquard, brocade, and bonded fabrics.

Notions

Coordinating thread, medium- to heavyweight interfacing (fusible or sew-in), approximately 15 yards of bias binding or seam binding to finish the seam allowances (optional), 1–1 1/2 yards of 1/4" chain to weight the hem (optional).
