This feminine one-button jacket is flattering to any figure type. Shown in elann Highland Donegal Tweed, colour "oatmeal."
One variation might be to use a yarn with mohair, alpaca or angora content just for the neckband insert to give a beautiful, soft effect.
The edges are finished with knitted-on I-cord, and the gathered shawl collar is tucked smoothly into the shoulder seams for perfect fullness.
The pattern is available via www.craftsy.com as a download for $7.
