|Great double collar - love it!|
It is described as a *loose-fitting jacket* but recommended fabrics are *moderate stretch knits.* I sew more with woven fabrics than knits, and I guess I'm a bit intimidated by knits, even after a great class on the subject by Pam Howard.

It didn't work but it's cute.
The pattern is actually drafted for fabric with stretch. Each pattern piece says *moderate stretch only.* But I had to try it.
I did learn something helpful. To me, anyway. It's not such a bad idea to make a cotton muslin trial for a future knit piece. It is now clear which pieces absolutely must be made out of a knit, and which ones might be OK in a woven or at least a less stretchy knit.
|Sausage arms, shoulders tight too|
- Sleeve bands
- Side front
- Back band
- Horizontal front bands
Could be made out of a stable knit (seems like Marcy pointed that out on her blog, now that I think about it):
- Vertical front bands
I think the above pieces might even work in a woven, but lesson learned, I'm going to try it in a knit. A knit I don't own yet. Or maybe multiple knits I don't own yet.
Marcy Tilton has made this up in the most perfect fabric. How uncreative would it be to just copy her?
