Antrim, Co Antri...






I wanted a lightweight jacket/ cardi to throw on for my flight to Spain and also to use at night as it gets nippy in February. I found this pattern quite by chance as I couldn’t find my cowl neck dress pattern from this issue so I hoaked my mag out to trace another and saw this on the cover.I used a quilted Jersey mix that looks a bit like leather. The inside was fleece so I just used binding around the edges. The seams are really nice on this. It was a quick sew and I have worn it so many times now x

Material Notes

Quilted Jersey.

    I love this! That fabric was just begging to become this jacket. Great job (as always!). -Stephanie

    Great cardi / coat, it’s very versatile and the fabric choice is perfect – and I’m sure it feels fantastic with the fleece inside.
