Here’s my June project, an organic jersey muslin for the Karen cardi. It’s handy to have in the office when they crank the a/c in the summer, but I’m not in love with it. A good lesson learned in remembering that structured garments look best on me. Flowy is pretty on the hanger and fabulous on the svelte :)
If you do make this, may I suggest reversing the seam for the neck? The collar pieces, which come around to form the pleated front, naturally want to fall outward, and I think it would look best if the neck seam were underneath (sewn wrong sides together).
30 select jacket and coat patterns are now marked down to $3.99.
