Well matured fabric/pattern

Double knits are great to use when you're building up a new wardrobe, or are refreshing an established one. This is a Lincraft pattern from way back, possibly 15 years.

The story behind this trim is this - I bought some cushion covers for the dining table and the cushions were held together with this ribbon. The idea isn't anything new but I thought that I should challenge my skills a bit.

I've kept the details close to my face, so the style is kept simple and clean. The jacket is interfaced with texture weft, to give the jacket more durability.
I wore it last night and it's comfortable and a nice layer to wear in the cold. I did notice the the back needs more shaping so I'll work on that in the coming weeks. For now, this is a nice addition to my winter wardrobe.

Wow you have made a designer jacket here. Love the trim and can't wait to see it in person.

Thanks for the nice comment. The main planning I did was in placing the ribbon evenly.
